The Editor . THE POCKET Looking Backward — and Forward HE thrilling exploit of collecting data for year book of National University for 1926 is ended. Looking backward over the months that have elapsed since the class elected its “Year Book Committee,” we find certain figures standing out conspicuously in the midst of the many who have played an active part in making a success of the adventure. To these, and to the class as a whole, we express our sincere appreciation of their assistance and cooperation. Towering above everything else in the editorial landscape stands Mr. Verdi, Personnel Editor, and Chairman of two vital committees, the Personnel Committee and the Subscription Committee. In fact without Mr. Verdi how could we have produced “The Docket?” His able cohorts on both committees — Mrs. Avery, Miss Martin, Mr. Millard, Mr. Seitz, in fact, all of them — have been so faithful to the trusts imposed upon them that the entire class, indeed the University as a whole, is indebted to them for whatever success this year’s class book may have attained. Mr. Gray, our level-headed young Treasurer, stands side by side with the group of valiant workers. Not only has he guarded our financial treasures, but he has assumed entire charge of the most important matter of “railroading” the officers of the different classes, the individual members of our own class, and the organization groups, into and out of the photographer’s studio. So skillfully has he managed this difficult engineering feat that relatively few faces will be missed, and those through no fault of his. M iss Helen L. Moore, Assistant Editor-in-Chief, has rendered assistance without which the Editor-in-Chief would have been in danger of falling by the wayside. Mr. Gothner and other members of the “Art Colony” worked faithfully to produce graphic records in a lighter vein, and the fact that they are not tangibly represented in the pages which follow is traceable to the decision, reached, after consultation with members of the Advisory Committee and other members of the class, to bring forth a “strictly tailored” book, “professional” — in keeping with the dignity we are about to assume as members of the most dignified and learned profession. M iss Nita S. Hinman has rendered assistance in many ways, for which we express appreciation. We are due debts of gratitude, not compensable in a financial way, to Mr. Lettau, our official photographer, to the Jahn Ollier Engraving Company of Chicago, and to Kuehn Brothers Company, Inc., of Baltimore and Washington, printers, all of whom have been patient, considerate, and in every way cooperative. As we have turned the pages of year books which have preceded us, we have been impressed by the lack of uniformity in name and general make-up. “National,” “Stare Decisis,” “Ye Shingle,” “The Docket,” are some of the names which have been used, and if we had a complete set we would doubtless find a variety of additions to this list. 5 THE POCKET As we look forward, in imagaination, over year books to follow us, we can but express the humble hope that future generations of T ear Book Committees will perpetuate the name, The Docket, which is believed to be preeminently suitable for a law school annual. Our school has now reached such a size and such a degree of importance in the collegiate and legal worlds, that the yearly record of personal, social, and gen- eral information concerning its personnel, not contained in the purely scholastic records kept by the University itself, is a matter of great importance, and so considered by the Chancellor and other members of the Faculty. Of course, as everyone knows, each Year Book Committee is a law unto itself, but this flash forward is prompted by pride in our Alma Mater. —THE EDITOR-IN-CHIEF. “Dreams, books, are each a world: and books we know, “Are a substantial world, both pure and good. “Round these, with tendrils strong as flesh and blood, “Our pastime and our happiness will grow.” 6 PART ONE The University ((jymmnmi THE POCKET NATIONAL UNIVERSITY 8 THE POCKET National University HE history of National University is unique in the annals of institutions of learning. It falls quite naturally, for purposes of record, into three phases: First, the period from its founding, in 1869, to the time of its reorganiza- tion, in 1896; second, the period from 1896 to 1919, or after the close of the World War; third, the period from 1919 to the present time. FIRST PHASE The boom of cannon and the clash of sword of the Civil War had hardly ceased to reverberate when, as part of the rejuvenation of our great country, National Univer- sity came into being. The University was first incorporated, in 1869, by Professor William B. Wedgewood, Professor Watson J. Newton, and a number of distinguished associates, the fundamental purpose of this group of far-visioned men being to carry out, as far as possible, the wishes of President Washington, as expressed in his message to the Congress of the United States, December 7, 1796: 1 have heretofore proposed to the consideration of Congress, the expediency of establishing a national university, and also a military academy. The desirableness of both these institu- tions has so constantly increased with every new view I have taken of the subject, that 1 cannot omit the opportunity of once for all recalling your attention to them. The assembly to which I address myself, is too enlightened not to be fully sensible how much a flourishing state of the arts and sciences contributes to national prosperity and reputa- tion. True it is, that our country, much to its honor, contains many seminaries of learning highly respectable and useful; but the funds upon which they rest are too narrow to command the ablest professors, in the different departments of liberal knowledge, for the institution contemplated, though they would be excellent auxiliaries. Amongst the motives to such an institution, the assimilation of the principles, opinions, and manners of our countrymen, by the common education of a portion of our youth from every quarter, well deserves attention. The more homogeneous our citizens can be made in these particulars, the greater will be our prospect of permanent union; and a primary object of such a national institution should be, the education of our youth in the science of government. In a republic, what species of knowledge can be equally important, and what duty more pressing on its legislature, than to patronize a plan for communicating it to those who are to be the future guardians of the liberties of the country? To this end, National University came into being, under the General Incorpora- tion Law of the District of Columbia. It was at no time officially connected with the Federal Government, yet it had the honor and unique privilege of having, as Ex-Officio Chancellors, five Presidents of the United States. The pictures of these Presidential Chancellors, if such a term is permissible, hang on the walls of the Univer- sity, and there will shortly be placed under each an actual diploma signed, and in a number of instances delivered by, the President in person. These pictures of the Presidents, together with fac simile reproductions of diplomas signed by each, in turn, follow: 9 THE POCKET 1 (50 TO 1 T7 ■ • iti Vvm s auimrtv Ate A ?

Alvey, Charles C. Cole, William B. Webb, Eugene Carusi, H. O. Claughton, Thomas Wilson, Matthew G. Emery, John Goode, Charles Lyman, John T. Winter, Howard H. Barker, and William C. Whittemore, their associates and successors, are hereby con- stituted a body politic and corporate by the name of the National University, with power to sue and be sued, plead and be impleaded, and to have perpetual succession ; to acquire, take by devise, bequest, or otherwise, hold, purchase, encumber, and convey such real and personal estate as shall be required for the purpose of its incorporation; to make and use a common seal and the same to alter at pleasure. Sec. 2. That the aforesaid incorporators shall be and constitute a board of trustees for the said university, seven of whom shall constitute a quorum to do business, and which board shall be, and are, authorized to fill any vacancies in their number, to appoint such officers and agents as the business of the corporation shall require, and to make by-laws for the accomplishment of its purposes, for the management of its property, and for the regulation of its affairs. Said corporation is hereby em- powered to establish and maintain within the District of Columbia a university for the promotion of education. The said corporation shall have power to grant and con- fer diplomas and the usual college and university degrees, and honorary degrees, and also such other powers as may be necessary fully to carry out and execute the general purposes of the said corporation as herein appearing. Sec. 3. That this act may be amended or repealed at any time by the Congress at its pleasure. Approved, June, 1896. 29 Stat. L., 194. The institution has continued to operate, to the present time, under the charter thus granted. Of the men whose names appear in the charter, Mr. Justice Mc- Arthur and Mr. Justice Cole were serving, at the time, on the Bench of the Supreme Court of the District of Columbia; Mr. Justice Alvey, at one time Justice of the Court of Appeals of Maryland, was the Chief Justice of the Court of Appeals of the District of Columbia. Among other incorporators was the late Honorable Eugene Carusi (father of the present Chancellor), who continued to act in this capacity to the time of his death, March 28, 1924; the Honorable Howard H. Barker, Dean of the Medical Department, and the Honorable John Goode, Attorney General of Virginia, and at one time Solicitor General of the United States. After President Cleveland’s retirement from office, at the expiration of his first term, the Board of Regents and Trustees of the University abolished the office of Chancellor Ex-Officio, and elected as Chancellor the late Honorable Arthur Mc- 20 THE POCKET Arthur, one of the founders of the institution. The following distinguished men succeeded the Honorable Arthur McArthur as Chancellor, in the order named : I he Honorable Samuel F. Miller, Associate Justice of the United States Supreme Court; the Honorable Richard H. Alvey, Chief Justice of the Court of Appeals of the Distri ct of Columbia; the Honorable Eugene Carusi, and the Honorable Charles Francis Carusi, himself a graduate of the Law School in 1896. I he first department of the University to be organized was the Law School, which, therefore, is one of the oldest law schools in the United States. It continued to function actively throughout this phase of the University’s existence. The Medical School was organized in 1884, and was merged with another institution in 1904. Other departments were added from time to time, but each, in turn, for one reason or another, was discontinued, leaving only the legal department. THIRD PHASE I lie Law School of National University continued to function alone until after the World War, when, in response to the growing demand for collegiate work of standard grade, which would provide preparation for those who aspire to follow a business, financial, or public career, and which would be correlated with the studies offered in the Law School, the Univerity organized the School of Business Adminis- tration and Government, then known as the College of Finance and Business Adminis- tration. The history of this school is given elsewhere in this volume. T he Law School has grown with remarkable celerity since the close of the World War. The student body now numbers nearly one thousand. The School of Business Administration and Government swells this number by more than two hundred students in its various departments. Many new courses have been added to both schools during the past year, and the indications are that the next year will see still further expansion. The University, therefore, bids fair to bring about, after more than a half-century of existence, a Greater National University, more nearly in accord with the ideals and wishes of the Father of his Country. — LOY McAFEE. 21 THE POCKET HONORABLE CHARLES FRANCIS CARUSI Chancellor 22 THE POCKET HAYDEN JOHNSON, LL.

Before thy lamp of learning, With age-long wisdom bright, We set our modest torches With Truth’s pure flame alight; And forth into the highways Of turbid, teeming life, We’ll strive to bear those torches high, Unquenched amid the strife. Here striving, with our fellows, To broaden each our sphere, We’ve laid the firm foundation Of friendship’s bond sincere. These ties with time will strengthen, And fellowship endure; The spirit of Old National Will hold that bond secure; And fleeting time will witness Fruition full and clear Of comrades engendered Within our classes here. When flagging courage faltered Along the weary way, Beneath the pressing burden That grew each passing day, Our well beloved professors Have stirred our zeal anew, With lofty inspiration, And counsel kind and true; Their steady, firm devotion, Their kindly words of cheer, Will linger in our memories For many a passing year. Though distant be the shining goal We each may strive to gain, With firm resolve we’ll forge ahead Our purpose to attain. The high ideals here imbued Will be our rule and guide, And we, who go from out these halls, Will bear thy name with pride; And if upon the scroll of fame Our names we may affix, We’ll proudly add there, “National — The Class of Twenty-Six.” — Van Ness Lawless, 26 . 38 THE POCKET PART THREE The Senior and Post-Graduate Classes T HE POCKET A Parting Word From The Chancellor Your editorial staff has invited me to confide to The Docket a parting message to you. This 1 very gladly do. I do not often get an opportunity to speak in a personal way to such a large number of students. Moreover, many times during the coming years you will turn over the pages of The Docket to renew memories of your com- rades, and it is possible that you may come across this message to you and respond to its suggestions. We all realize that the ties formed here, not only between yourselves, but between the students and the faculty, are by no means severed when your status changes from that of student to alumnus. I also feel sure that you, each of you, realize that our interest in you is a personal one, that it extends to your welfare and to your happiness and success in life, and that it grows greater instead of less as time goes on. There were many years during which the student body was less numerous, and my own opportunities for individual contacts, in and out of the classroom, enabled me to know every student as a friend. This is no longer possible, except in the case of those who have sought me out for counsel, help, or encouragement. If any one of you who reads these lines be not among that number, I ask you to remember that I am never too busy to see any present or former student, and that there are few pleasures I rate as highly as that of being of service to my fellow students and fellow graduates of our common Alma Mater. An institution is, or it should be, judged by the caliber of its students and gradu- ates. It is a matter of just pride with us that, rated by this test, our institution need acknowledge few equals and no superiors. The loyalty and appreciation of the Na- tional student has long been a subject of favorable comment among those in Washing- ton interested in education, and especially among the students of other institutions. It has been the consistent aim of the officers and members of the faculty to encourage this sentiment by fair and liberal treatment of the student and considerate interest in his individual problem, whether academic or personal. We part, therefore, for a time at least, with a very deep and abiding sentiment of mutual respect for and good will toward one another, and with love for our Alma Mater. Chancellor. 40 THE POCKET History of the Class of 1926 “What matter how grave the law, “How many the punishments provided: “For cash in hand we’ll find a flaw, “Create your evidence, or hide it.” — With certain apologies. N the passing of the Class of 1926 from the sacred portals of National University one witnesses no little amount of tragedy. Drawn from the four corners of the earth and impelled by a variety of motives which defy enumeration, we gathered together, a motley, heterogeneous band, and undertook to journey side by side to the rainbow s end of our ambitions. T he crucible of the classroom soon dissolved the initial aloofness of each student, and, in the cooling process of time, an organization bound together by close association, scholastic endeavor, and wholesome social inter- course, was produced. I hrough the sorrows and difficulties which have filled the last three years, each has found in his classmates friendship, understanding and sympathy ; in moments of happiness and pleasure, each has shared the good fortunes of all. And, just as the rainbow’s end appears on the horizon, what was once a group of individuals strange to each other is now a solidified body of mature men and women, imbued with common ideals and prepared to enter upon equally promising careers. But in spite of the brilliant prospects of fame, success and wealth held out to us by the future, we all experience a certain sorrow at the realization that this unity of purpose and spirit, achieved at so great an expenditure of time and effort, must now be destroyed. The members of the class will disperse here and there in this man’s world and relapse into individuals again. The spirit of the class alone will remain to supply the memory of each student with pleasant recollections and to encourage the classes which shall follow us. It is with this spirit that we are now concerned. Its ethereal loftiness and its eternal indestructibility seem to demand that we set down for the inspiration of posterity the facts of its creation and growth, its influence and its significance. This we shall attempt to do by sketching as accurately and as chronologically as possible our progress in this institution. The gradual coordination of our thoughts, the eventual amalgamation of our interests, the steady consolidation of our efforts, our glory in victory, our honor in defeat will be here depicted without prevarication or prejudice, so that in years to come our Alma Mater may recall with pardonable pride the days of our sojourn here and acknowledge our great contribution to the enhanced honor and fame which it is bound to secure among other universities of law. 41 THE POCKET Our first few weeks of disorganized association here were not of the most peaceful and friendly kind. Just as a number of stray wolves coming together in the wilderness will tear each other limb from limb until the strongest of them becomes the acknowledged leader of the newly formed pack, so did the most ambitious among us initiate a competitive rivalry for recognition and leadership. But, being human, the tearing apart was more argumentative than physical, more vocal than actual. From the ballot scuffle which followed there came into prominence some whose names have since become inseparably linked with all the activities of the class. Edward McQuade, Loyola Coyne, Bertha E. Richardson, J. Hammond Brewer, and Elton Layton were safely washed ashore on a wave of popular approval and immediately set themselves to the task of discharging the responsibilities imposed upon them by virtue of the several offices to which they were elected. It was not an easy task, since the grumbling of disappointed candidates which persisted for some months did much to increase its burdens and difficulties. But in the meantime the classroom itself was at work breaking down formality, removing the bars of convention and creating a dignified familiarity between the students. The end of the year found the artificial and the superficial atmosphere surrounding them entirely gone, and 1924 marked the appearance of indvidual assertion. It would be a grievous error, however, to maintain that any one influence alone accomplished the satisfactory adjustment of each member to the class. The non- scholastic organizations contributed materially to produce this result and must be included in any distribution of credit. The Alvey Debating Society, composed entirely of first year students, was the theatre of many a battle royal of clashing wits and conflicting opinions, which usually left its participants with a little something of the other fellow’s point of view and a great deal of his general caliber, his sportsmanship, and his savoir faire. During the first term of school this society was ably presided over and conducted by Delmour Fuqua, who possessed the soul and the ambitions of Demosthenes, even though his ability may not have equaled that of his ancient master. During the last terms John L. Rogers assumed the presidency of the society and guided its work with a zeal that was only surpassed by the success which he achieved. Three Greek letter fraternities and one sorority are also to be reckoned with in narrating the influences which tended to narrow the prejudices and broaden the visions of the student body. These organizations are known to us only by their activities, but these have been sufficient to give every member of the class a keen insight into the great work done by them in moulding character and making scholars out of students. The interfraternity dance given in the Hall of Nations of the Washington Hotel was more conducive to a better understanding between fraternity and non- fraternity students than anyone could possibly have anticipated. It completely under- mined the growing feeling of clique rule, prejudice and rivalry, and demonstrated the fraternities to be centers of chivalry and organizations both able and willing to serve. Among the non-fraternal organizations which are worthy of meritorious com- ment as contributing in a larger sense toward the development of brotherly feeling are the Cy Pres Club and the War College, their membership consisting, respectively, of the fair sex and the stronger sex. Is there a man in the class whose digestion and 42 THE POCKET purse have not been annually impaired by the candy sales of the Cy Pres Club? Our girls of the class of 1926 have always stood out in the activities of the Club and each term take their place in the line of officers. The War College is the male counterpart of the Cy Pres Club, and is entitled to equal consideration. Again the class of 1926 has come forward and boasts the honor of having had two of its mem- bers, John Essler and Claude Branner, chosen as leaders of this venerable organization. When one considers the extraordinary advantages for social intercourse of every description afforded by the several organizations already mentioned, it is difficult to understand how the different idiosyncracies of each student were gradually merged into a form of mob individuality by the end of the first year. This, however, can only be considered the formative period of the class, for it had scarcely passed its embryonic stage at the beginning of the second year. The opening of the second year marked the beginning of our infancy. The greenness of thd first year had worn off, the novelty of the studies we were pursuing had disappeared, and the real test which finally shook the dross out of our ranks and steeled the remainder to carry on took place. Outside of school hours our interest in the non-scholastic organizations took on, a new impetus and began to have a greater meaning. We cast more or less contemptuous glances at the “shack and shanty bunch of Freshmen that poured in from heaven knows where to take the place we had vacated and we were drawn closer together by a justifiable feeling of superiority. The members of our class took charge of the Miller Debating Society which, under the direction of Delmour Fuqua and Frank Verdi, flourished and progressed. A bitter campaign which had been initiated during the summer threatened to divide the class politically. Friendly relations were strained, injuries, insults, caustic comments and sarcastic insinuations were freely exchanged, and the elections bid fair to become a veritable free for all. However, actual bloodshed was averted, and out of the ashes arose Harold Stephenson, Albert Viault, Esther Martin, John Roberts, Francis O’Reilly and Bertha Richardson. The situation confronting the newly elected class officers was a most desperate one, since the class remained split into two hostile camps throughout the entire first term. After struggling along for the first two semesters the sun came up during the third term, and the end of the year found its radiant beams streaming through every aperture of the school and firing every student with more zeal, loyalty and stick-to-it-iveness than would have been conceivable. When the actual handshaking was done after the final examinations those who went forth from the Junior Class were from then on men and women of iron, tried, tested, and found capable of standing the gaff. We had entered in the fall only loosely bound together by association and familiarity, but parted in the summer united as one by community of thought, conduct and purpose. When the University threw its doors open for the final year, it was with genuine warmth and brotherly feeling that classmates shook each others’ hands and exchanged greetings. No ill feeling or bitterness was in evidence anywhere. The fraternities, the Cy Pres Club and the War College joined together to pay their final respects to the defunct clubs and societies which had wilted and gone to seed with the summer 43 the: docket daisies, and normalcy reigned supreme. The school work was gone into with more earnestness and determination, and the reorganization of the class for its last year was accomplished with more humor than rivalry. A four cornered election, extended over a period of five weeks, resulted in finally bestowing the dignities and responsi- bilities of class office to Marquis Albertson, James Donovan, Mrs. Edwina Avery, John C. MacNab, James R. Roads, Miss Bertha E. Richardson and Harold Stephen- son. The Year Book officers, who had been selected just prior to the close of school in 1925, were Dr. Loy McAfee, Frederick Flynn and Norman Gray. It might be well to mention that a large number of students, who had spent their first two years in the study of law at Georgetown University and George Washington, were wel- comed to our ranks to be absorbed into the class simultaneous with their arrival and, at this writing, are now part of the great big family. The Moot Court of the school has been the chief source of interest to the mem- bers of the graduating class. In it has been found the long sought opportunity for self-expression, and it has been used to the benefit of some, to the profit of others, and to the entertainment of all. As each of us marches out of the commencement hall with a sheepskin safely tucked under his or her arm, we will feel more keenly than ever the loss which our success has imposed upon us. Each will go his or her own way under the light of some new rainbow which will guide us to the end of the long road, for the final distribution of laurels. Although we have sketched the circumstances which tended to produce the most brilliant class of students ever to be graduated from a university of law, little men- tion has been made of those in that class whose intellectual feats, whose inspiring personality, whose unselfish devotion, and whose incomparable genius have so con- trolled those circumstances as to render the result achieved inevitable. Let us now take up our narrative in a new vein and point out to the world wherein our greatness lies and of what metal it consists. The real worker of the first year was Miss Loyola Coyne, who in true Mae Murray fashion, prevailed upon the class to vote themselves a class pin as a badge of the “easy-mark.” The scholastic progress of the class took place under rather ordinary circum- stances. Our professors were all amiable gentlemen who were able to recognize the high intellectual average of our members, who were willing to overlook our disregard of their authority and to indulge our irrepressible tendency to criticize, belittle and make fun of them at leisure. Those of us who possessed analytical minds derived varying amounts of mischievous pleasure from repeated comparisons of Fritz Bastian’s humor with Godfrey Munter’s genuine, spontaneous and original wit. Who does not recall how many times Mr. O’Reilly became surety for the cashier of Mr. McQuade’s bank; how many times Freddie Flynn became the guarantor of Miss Jarvis’ debts; or how often section 1317 of “de code” and chapter “sebendeen of de booooooooooook " said “date a married woman could not become a surety”? Who has forgotten that Edison memory test which Justice Bailey passed on us in the form 44 THE POCKET of a criminal law examination? Who has ever figured out what deep mystery sur- rounded the particular spot, in an otherwise common-place ceiling, that held the eyes of our professor William Coombe? Who has ever been able to finally settle the eternal litigation between “Jawhn Doe and Richard Roe”? Who does not recall with the greatest spiritual consolation the “torturous” Sunday morning sermons of Father O’Donnell? Our first year overflowed with such memory-breeding incidents which shall haunt our retrospective moments throughout the remainder of our lives. Before passing into our account of the many noteworthy incidents which occurred in the ensuing years, however, we feel constrained to mention here the distinction obtained by and the prizes awarded to several of our number, which were inad- vertently omitted from the official catalog of the year published by the University. There were several close contenders for The Wriggley Scholarship, but it finally went to the member who put more wrinkles into a nickel’s worth of gum than the United Fruit Company could have pressed into a boatload of prunes. The Caruso award of birdseed went to a gentleman whose reluctant renderings of “On the Road to Man- dalay” also obtained for him life membership in the Order of the Shrinking Violets. “BRAVO!” All the medals, badges, emblems, jewels, certificates, diplomas and degrees for scenic effects and sartorial exhibitions went to Albert Viault, whose fre- quent appearances in knickerbockers, sweaters, flannel shirts, and brass buttoned regalia rescued from the wreck of his career at the Naval Academy, won for him the un- coveted position of class manikin. Our Junior year was chiefly characterized by the quibbling and squabbling during its first two terms. The first argument arose over the management of the school dances, which was finally satisfactorily settled with the senior and freshmen classes. Our next squabble arose in the form of a constitution and by-laws issue, which finally resulted in the acceptance of a set of rules and regulations covering election, dues, and the conduct of our activities. It was at this time that Andrew J. Herlits, Jr., and Franklin Anderson, our professional obstructionists and “died-hard” parliamen- tarians, came into prominence. But in spite of their oratory, which would have caused Cicero to weep with shame at his incompetence, the constitution and by-laws were adopted and became the organic law of our official procedure. Hardly had the bitterness of this last dispute subsided when the class was intro- duced to the “Exceptions to the Hearsay Rule” and a few other “Fundamental Prin- ciples” expounded by our much beloved, although often dreaded, Justice Siddons. In due course the “Little Green Book” became prominent, and as the pages of Part- nership were traversed the Democratic Platform was expounded. While we were still perusing the evolution from “delivery of seizen” to leases and releases, the date for the Junior Prom rolled around. A social committee of unsur- passable energy and determination had worked incessantly for some months with the object of promoting a social function that would excel every other similar entertain- ment which had been previously undertaken. The final night arrived and over three 45 THE POCKET hundred couples congregated at the City Club to take part in the orgy of pleasure which had been prepared. What took place under the streamers of serpentine which littered the hall can never be accurately pictured or related. Everyone there was far too occupied adding to the din or contributing to the merrymaking to notice the effect produced by the whole. Let it therefore suffice to say that the glory of that evening remains indelibly imprinted in the minds of those who helped to make it and of the others who came to enjoy it. The days which immediately followed the Prom were sprinkled with remnants of the laughter and sunshine which radiated from it. The routine requirements of school were again attended to, and the end of the year was reached without further conjectures and without additional casualties. During the summer, as did several members of the faculty, Messrs. Judd and Viault of our class, took a trip to France and returned in the fall to delight the satellites of the War College with narrations of the many experiences and impressions secured while abroad. Other items of note: Miss Minton changed her name to Bischoff, as Miss Austin had changed hers to Avery the preceding summer ; while Messrs. Mossburg, Rubio, Euler, Knowles and Branner joined the benedicts. When school recovered the class learned with surprise and consternation that Larry Connor had at last fallen in love and that several other often observed romances had sprung a leak. However, it might be well for us to recall than an equal number are still flourishing. Everybody else seemed healthy and happy, except Ham Brewer, whose worried expression has led many to believe that he has slipped from the path of single blessedness. Class activity has gone on with more harmony than ever before. A few private and inconsequential little misunderstandings occurred during the campaign of the several candidates, but without creating any permanent ill-feeling. President Albertson constituted Andrew Herlits and the Duke of Kakyack a social committee for the class, and appointed a class ring committee consisting of Brett, Schatzow, Connors, Trapp, and Smith. In December and February the social committee delighted the class with a dance at the Hotels Washington and Raleigh, respectively. As the end of our senior year drew near our Treasurer, “Baldy” MacNab, usurped the prerogative of Shylock and went out for class dues in specie form rather than in promissory form. No doubt, he will some day be in Rockefeller’s or Henry Ford’s class if he goes after the “retainer fee” with the same zeal. The mid-winter bar examinations were successfully passed by several students. Bruce Henderson was admitted to the Tennessee Bar; Frank Luttrell, Ham Brewer and Freddie Flynn became Virginia Barristers, and Saul Lichtenberg and Nita Hin- man will practice in the District of Columbia. The Moot Court of the University has been the scene of several illuminating exhibitions of ability in the arts of both creating and applying the law. The first trial 46 THE POCKET resulted in the conviction of Albert Van Viault, alias Richard Black, on a charge of grand larceny for which he was sentenced to eighteen months in the penitentiary by Justice Willett. However, upon recommendation of the Probation Officer, the sen- tence was suspended. The second trial which attracted the undivided attention of the class was ' that brought by Esther Martin in her efforts to mulct Larry Connor for breach of promise. Her tear-stained eyes and broken spirit failed to win the jury and a verdict, but certainly endeared herself in the hearts of all of us. The climax of legal faux-pas came when Attorneys Choat, Flynn and Verdi attempted to prosecute a murder case without a dead man. To the great amusement of the entire class these three legal lights were beaten by the “Black-hand delegation,” composed of Rubio, Bednarchack and Hannum. An event somewhat out of the ordinary occurred when a smoker was held at Harvey’s early in January. Some one hundred and fifty boys gathered to wash down oysters with “Volsteadian” elixir. The class banquet, which was held at the Hotel Mayflower, May 8, with the assistance of many prominent speakers, and the presence of several of the faculty, proved to be the greatest success from a social and “get-to-gether” standpoint. The familiar faces of our classmates will long be remembered as gracing the festive board, amid the profusion of beautiful floral designs and decorations embodying the school colors. Red, White and Blue. As we come to an end we can’t help but think what Professor Syme has so often told us: “If we want to find out what we are, just go out and stick our finger in a bucket of water, and after taking it out see what we have.” As w« comd to the end of our glorious, but stoney journey, we are, as a certain bass voice has sung nightly, each and everyone, “H-E-R-EEEEEEEEEEeeeeeeee.” — BERTHA E. RICHARDSON. “There is a destiny that makes us brothers; “None goes his way alone: “All that we send into the lives of others “Comes back into our own.” 47 THE POCKET Officers of the Class of 1926, Senior Year JAMES P.

He started with the class in 1923 and has been a conscientious student since, except when he was getting a little actual practice in police court, answering charges of speeding. He is the “Bar- ney Oldfield” of the Class. When he is not elud- ing some traffic cop or studying law, he amuses himself by selling real estate. The old adage “that nobody loves a fat man” is not true with Louie, for he is quite a “shiek” with the fair sex, and it remains a mystery how he has escaped the dangerous darts from Cupid’s bow. He is a member of the Knights of Columbus, the Phi Beta Gamma Legal Fraternity, and the War College. With reference to the latter fraternal affiliation we might add that he has attended all the War College Smokers and added to the enter- tainment by doing the “Charleston.” Once the championship prize was almost within his grasp when one of our Professors was asked to make a speech; Louie lost the attention of the audience during the speech and has never been able to regain it. However, he should have had the prize. As soon as he receives this coveted LL.B. at National he expects to combine law and real es- tate into a money gathering business in the Capital City. FRANKLIN V. ANDERSON West Friendship, Maryland Dno’t confuse the above address with the birth- place of “Andy,” for he is one of the “Andersons of Virginia, suh!” He honored the halls of Na- tional with his presence in the autumn of ’23, and has been a familiar figure since, in the War Col- lege, class meetings, and Phi Beta Gamma Legal Fraternity affairs. His chief hobbies are politics and objecting to anything that is not run according to the rules of the particular game. When an election is at hand, for President of the United States or for President of the class of ’26, “Andy” is always found working hard to put his candidate across. And if things in the class meetings are the least bit out of order, here comes “Andy,” with a copy of the by-laws to straighten things out. He says he is “very much single,” but we understand that when the LL.B. degree has been conferred upon him he expects to take Judge Wil- let’s Moot Court advice — marry, settle down, and practice law. Good luck, 01’ Pal, in all the under- takings ! 58 THE POCKET JAMES R. ARMSTRONG Jordan, New York “Doc” is a native of the EMPIRE S TATE. He is a member of the Masons, Eastern Star, and the Washington Board of Trade, and the Sigma Delta Kappa Fraternity. He came to National in the fall of 1923, and has been a conscientious and earnest student of the law since. He seems to have as a hobby the acquisition of degrees, for he now holds an M.D., and a D.D.S., and is candidate for LL.B., LL.M. and M.P.L. here in our midst. The only degree that he is not trying for is “HUSBAND.” So far he has refrained from matrimony and confined his activities to the studies of medicine, dentistry, and the law. He plans to return to his native state and practice law. The best wishes of your classmates go with you, “Doc”, for your success and singular hap- piness. EDWINA V. AVERY Silver Creek, New York The World War brought Edwina Austin to Washington. We are sorry there was a war, but glad that “Eddie” came, that she remained, that she matriculated at National, and that we still have her with us — Edwina Austin Avery! For how could we get along without her? Besides holding down a man-sized job as Junior Investigator in the Department of Agriculture, she is a talented artist, a gifted elocutionist, a good student, and a cracker-jack saleswoman. “Eddie” could sell any- thing, and can, from tiny bags of candy for the Cy Pres Club, to dance and banquet tickets and year book subscriptions. No class activity has lacked her cooperation. She is a member of the Kappa Beta Pi Legal Sorority and an active mem- ber of the Cy Pres Club. She was treasurer of the Cy Pres Club during the junior year, and was elected, without oposition, to the office of Secretary of the Class during the senior year. Gone are the days of being a witness in “The Great Moot Court,” “Eddie,” so you will have to find another hobby now. Let us hope that after you receive the LL.B. degree you won’t have to sell “nuthin’ to nobody no time,” but that you will do lots of collecting for Avery Avery, Certified Public Accountants and Attorneys at Law. 59 THE POCKET ELDON L. BAILEY Somerset, Pennsylvania Eldon joined the class when we were all “fresh- ies” and has been a faithful student all along the way. He served in the United States Navy from May 5, 1917, to May 10, 1919, and is now a First Lieutenant in the Officers’ Reserve Corps. He is married and “settled down,” and is occupied in the Veterans’ Bureau, as Assistant Chief in the Adjusted Compensation Division. He is a mem- ber of Mt. Pleasant Lodge No. 33, F.A.A.M., and of the Masonic Club of the University. He is an all-round athlete, but specializes in rowing (senior oarsman and senior sculler), swimming, and wrestling. After he has been awarded the LL.B. degree, for which he is a candidate, he expects to specialize in the practice of the law of Real Property. (Evidently Professor Patterson’s course made a deep impression on Eldon). FREDERICK G. BARKER District of Columbia “Fritz” is one of those fellows that says “Yes indeedy.” Oh ! you’ve guessed ! Yes, he ' s a Washingtonian. He informs us that he ' s single and that his favorite indoor-outdoor pastime is African Golf, from which latter we judge he’ll stay single for sometime, unless he’s as lucky at that as he is at passing exams. He is a member of Phi Beta Gamma Legal Fraternity, and is a past-master at feeding tacks to goats, we under- stand. We might add in passing, girls, that “Fritz” is also a past-master at the “Light Fan- tastic,” and Oh, Boy! you should see that Chap Charleston his way through Bills and Notes! When he gets his LL.B. degree he is going to dis- continue his numerous lucrative employments and settle down to the practice of his profession in the Nation ' s Capital — which proves, what we have long suspected, that Frederick G. is a courageous young man, for it takes courage of a rare variety for a fresh Bar admittee to tackle the “legal situa- tion” here, where Court House Square has only three sides. Anyhow, here’s luck to you, Fritz! 60 the; pocket LEROY H. BARNARD District of Columbia Born in OF Virginny and with a nickname which he says “isn’t fit to print,” let us introduce you to Barnard, that is if you need an introduction, for the only ones of his classmates who aren’t already acquainted with the gentleman are the ones who never come to class, or who come and sleep through it. Fact of the matter is, if one of the professors should happen to start lecturing on Ja- cob’s Ladder, Barnard would get up and ask him the number of rungs in it. His chief hobby is asking questions and noting exceptions to the Su- preme Court. He is one of the Associate Supreme Rulers of the War College and has delivered sev- eral powerful dissenting opinions on legal and all other questions. How he happens to claim fishing as a side-line hobby we don’t know, unless he practices forensic oratory on the ghost of Isaac Walton and on the Potomac shad. During his search for legal knowledge he has amused himself by pounding a telegraph instrument for the Western Union, and taking an active part in any social activities of the school. He is a Mason and a member of the Reserve Corps, being rated as a Second “Looey” in the National Guards, 320th Infantry. As soon as he receives his LL.B. he intends to marry and practice law in Virginia and the District. MURRAY H. BARNES Alma, Kansas In the Sunflower State, and the big city of Alma, “Barnsey” first saw the light of day. After being married several years he decided the LAW had been laid down long enough, and that it was time he took it up; so, amidst the sounding of brass and the tinkling of cymbals, he arrived at National. He is a member of Sigma Mu Sigma and a Mason, and swears he is a careful driver. That may be true, as we’ve never met him socially or otherwise in Traffic Court. In the dim and distant days of his care-free youth he was SOME debater on his high school team; he was a member, too, of the high school newspaper staff. He decided that his married life should be peaceful so he did his bit of warring first with the Germans, and we under- stand that Mrs. Barnes is mighty proud of his honorable discharge. When he gets his LL.B. he is going out and conquer the world practising his chosen profession. 61 THE POCKET WILLIAM R. BEALL Cumberland, Maryland “Bill” is indigenous to the soil of the “ten miles square” playground of Congress, he is listed as from Maryland, and he is a member of the North Carolina Bar, from all of which it rather looks as if he he is a citizen of the world. He came to National in 1925, from the Knights of Columbus School, and is a candidate for the LL.B. degree. During his short stay at National he has proved that he is a “go getter,” for anyone who would journey, by auto (no, we did not say what kind of a car it was), all the way to North Carolina to take a state bar examination, and who passed it the first time, must be made of good metal. He has since been admitted to the Georgia State Bar, and to the Court of Claims. He has not confided in us with respect to his legal plans, but we under- stand that before he forms a law partnership he intends to enter into a life partnership. Success in both ventures ! From 1917 to 1920 “Bill” “did time” in Naval Aviation Service. After that he took up golf. (There is no significance to be attached to the sequence of events). STEPHEN J. BEDNARCHAK Yonkers, New York “Mr. Stephen,” being an adventurous youth, made a break from the hills of Yonkers-near-the- Hudson, and set out to see the world. While negotiating this exploit he got as far as Washing- ton, where he must have listened in one some “dirt farmer” oratory on Capitol Hill. At any rate he decided to help make things safe for the farmer, so he took a clerkship in the Department of Agri- culture. What started him off on the law side- track is not stated in “Who’s Who,” but when we tell you that it is his ambition, after he has re- ceived the LL.B. degree, to be a lawyer in the Traffic Department, you will doubtless surmise that he must have had some practical experience with Traffic Regulations that stimulated in him a desire to be of service to fellow sufferers similarly situated. He has participated, during the three years at Na- tional, in several minor and a few major engage- ments as a member of the Miller Debating Society. He is a member of the Modern Woodmen of America, and of the War College and the Bache- lors’ Club of National. 62 THE POCKET JOHN R. BENNEY Seattle, Washington After growing up in the “great open spaces,” “Jack” decided he wanted to see something of the “White Lights” and narrow spaces of the rest of the world. Opportunity came swiftly with the War and his twenty-three months in France with the 116th Field Signal Battalion and General Headquarters. After doing his bit to make the world safe for democracy, he decided to study law, and so we are honored with his presence at National. “Jack” seems to have a preference for matters of Constitutional and International Law, and even Federal Procedure never seemed to bother him, as we well remember from his verbal demonstrations in the classroom. Unlike many of us, he has already landed, for he holds down a legal desk in one of the Government de- partments. We know that he is making good in that work, just as he will after he receives the LL.B. degree for which he is a candidate, and returns home to practice law. In the Great West he will have further opportunity to enjoy his favorite pastime — mountaineering. You see “Jack” is a climber in more ways than one. He is a Mason, member of the Sigma Delta Kappa Legal Fraternity, and of the Bachelor’s Brigade. S. LEONARD BLACK Lawton, Oklahoma Leonard hails from the section of the country where men are men — to be more specific, Lawton, Oklahoma. If time and space would permit, we would go into his World War record in great de- tail but suffice to say he gave his best to his country and at the termination of the War was promoted from the grade of 2nd Lieutenant to that of 1st Lieutenant. Girls, here is a golden opportunity! The gentleman in question confesses that he is at present in the state of single blessedness, but makes no statement that he is content to stay that way. He is employed in the Pension Bureau, but upon receiving his LL.B. from this institution of learn- ing, he intends to enter the firm of Black and Black in Oklahoma. Leonard is a member of the Kappa Sigma Fraternity, claims to be an innocent bystander in the War College, but those of us who know him would not say he was as innocent as he would have us believe. For out-door exercise, he indulges in the favorite pastime of chasing the little white ball over the green. He also enjoys hunting when time permits. 63 THE POCKET JOSEPH C. BOYLE Providence, Rhode Island For all we know “Larry” may be a direct de- scendant of Roger Williams, as everybody has a right to be who hails from the fussy little state that had two capitals when some of us studied geography. But don’t make the mistake of plac- ing “Larry” in the wrong one — ask him to pro- nounce it and you’ll see that he qualifies, for no- body but a native can pronounce Providence just that way. Whether he learned to play golf on the links of Providence or Newport, we are not pretending to say, but we do know that he is a second Sarazen at the game. Horseback riding is another of his hobbies, but we don’t know whether he has acquired such proficiency in the first sport that he knocks ’em so far that he had to take up horseback riding in order to find his balls, or whether he rides just for style. For “Larry” you know, is next door neighbor to the Pace Setters. He manages to keep himself interested during off hours by doing duty as administrative assistant at the Bureau of Standards. He is a member of Sigma Nu Phi and the Interstate Club, and ac- knowledges that he is still a bachelor. He is can- didate for the degree of LL.B. CLAUDE E. BRANNER Pocomoke, Maryland Branner, the “Senator of the Chesapeake,” ac- quired his title because of the extraordinary ability with which he distinguishes himself in his favorite hobbies, i.e., presiding over the War College and sleeping in Patent Law class. Incidentally he is a candidate for an LL.B., LL.M., and M.P.L. In his few hours of leisure he keeps out of mischief by “HARD WORK” and selling real estate. He is a member of Sigma Nu Phi, the Woodrow Wil- son Club and the Maryland Law Club. Your re- porter has watched with interest the steady rise of this enterprising young man since he first entered our Alma Mater as Freshman in 1923. Great things were expected of him because of his ver- satility and then, — the unforseen happened. Short- ly after the “MID-YEARS” he mysteriously dis- appeared. Great was the consternation, great the mourning, etc. because of his loss. And then just as we were giving him up as one lost to us for- ever, he returned a Conquering Hero, the proud possesser of a fair young bride. Evidently Pro- fessor Coombe’s course in Domestic Relations in his Freshman year made a very favorable and lasting impression on our young Lochinvar. 64 THE POCKET WILLIAM G. BRAUN Cheyenne, Wyoming Cheyenne, Cheyenne, hop on my pony There’s room here, for two, dear, And after the ceremony, We’ll both ride home as one on my pony, A ridin’ to old Cheyenne. So sang Bill a few years ago, after which he packed all his troubles in his old kit bag, and with his wife under his arm, he headed for the Nation’s Capitol. Not long thereafter he drifted over to the National and joined us in our mad pursuit of the knowledge of the Law. He served during the World War as a Yeoman in the U. S. Navy, but now that it’s all over prefers land sports such as tennis, hunting, and motoring. After he acquires his LL.B. he intends to practice in either Wyoming, his home state, or Colorado. RUMAN HOUSTON BRETT Richmond, Virginia We wonder who they call him “Fred,” unless that is Esperanto for “Question, Please!’’ For while his motto may be, “Be silent and pass for a philosopher,” his actual belief, judging from his classroom practice, is, “If you don’t ask questions you’ll have to do a lot of unnecessary digging.” Having studied everything about his favorite sub- ject, Evolution, at the University of Richmond, Roman Houston entered National to give some thought to law. He finds, however, that it has no beginning, and will have no ending. He holds a Lou-Mor Debating Medal from the University of Richmond Law School, and is now progressing toward the LL.B. and M.P.L. degrees at National. He plans to practice law in Florida, and during off hours will continue the study of Evolution, particularly with respect to how the Florida Real Estate Boom evoluted — and devoluted. He gave the United States Navy a three-year turn during the World War period, and now he is about to set sail in the Matrimonial Bark. He is a member of the Sigma Nu Phi Legal Fraternity. 65 THE POCKET J. HAMMOND BREWER, JR. Arlington, Virginia “The original gentleman from Virginia” — if any- one doesn’t believe it just try to tell him he’s a “northerner.” Outside of telling folks how they do things down in Virginia, his favorite pastimes are golf, hunting and dancing. He says he’s sin- gle with no prospects of being otherwise, but we are not so sure about that, after watching him at the various school proms, and noting the earnest- ness with which he has applied himself to the task of becoming a good debater. The boy evidently believes in being prepared not only for the opening argument but also for the rebuttals and sur-re- buttals. He is a member of Sigma Delta Kappa and the F.F.V., and has taken an active part in all the class activities, having acted as Treasurer of the class during our Freshman year, besides being a member of various committees during the other two years. He is already a member of the Vir- ginia Bar and expects to go back and help ’em run things down there after he receives his LL.B. degree from National. Good luck, “Ham,” Old Boy, — may your name go down in history along with the rest of Virginia’s famous sons, as a staunch advocate of Justice for all — but justice tempered with mercy. PETER F. BROGAN Amsterdam, New York Out of Amsterdam came “Pierre Brogue” to serve his Uncle Samuel. He came, he saw, and then he stayed to conquer. He was already the proud possessor of diplomas from Reynold’s Busi- ness College and the School of Commerce, both of his home town, but as a further aid in his un- equal struggle he proceeded to “take up law.” Fraternally we find him affiliated with the Knights of Columbus and Sigmu Nu Phi, and SOCIALLY — but we hesitate to disclose the deep-dyed facts. Gather round girls and take another squint at the picture that accompanies this sketch and then listen, — “Yes, he’s single and his one great passion is ‘All the Ladies’ In sports his favorite is swim- ming; we hesitate to comment, but you know there are all kinds of tales of MERMAIDS. All jesting aside, though, he’s ambitious and full o’pep, with his eyes fixed steadfastly on an LL.M. Here’s more power to you Pete 01’ Boy ! 66 THE POCKET FERMIN GAGHOLA Arecibo, Porto Rico “A little man, but yet I trow That little man can raise a row.” One more judge for the courts of Porto Rico! In the black eyes of Fermin one sees the romance of Old Spain. Our country is too prosaic for him — that’s why he intends to sit on the Bench back in his Island home, rich in poetry and imagination. We see him, when the busy day in court is over, and the moon has taken her place in the heavens, singing underneath the window of his beloved u Marcheta. ,, He has been a faithful student, and his Moot Court work proved him to be efficient as a cross-examiner. As a translator of his own language he is most proficient. When he has re- ceived the LL.B. degree for which he is so ear- nestly striving, and sails away to begin his race for the ultimate goal, his classmates will give him the support and encouragement of abundant good wishes. JAMES O. CADE Brownwood, Texas “Cado” hails from Texas and like all others from the Lone Star State is proud of it and no doubt the State is proud of such fellows as “Cado”. He graduated from Daniel Baker College at Brownwood, Texas, with an A.B., and then started his search for legal knowledge at George Wash- ington. There he hung up quite a record as a debater, taking part in the debates against the University of West Virginia, Penn State, and Cam- bridge University, England. He must also have had quite a reputation for oratory in Texas as he was chosen three consecutive years as college orator in the State contest. He is a member of the Delta Theta Phi Legal Fraternity and the A.F. and A.M. His hobbies run to golf and “fast driv- ing,” the latter, we suppose, not on the links. He expects to practice law in Texas, and, with the aid of his good wife and his LL.B., we expect him to succeed the “Texas Bearcat” in a few years. 67 THE POCKET JOHN A. CAMPBELL Brooklyn, New York “Judge” Campbell’s favorite pastime is travel. He evidently believes that “he travels fastest who travels alone,” but how he has managed to keep going in single harness is a mystery to us. “Judge ’ served with the United States Volunteer Signal Corps in Cuba during the Spanish American War, and as a member of the Selective Service Board, New York City, during the World War. He at- tended Prince of Wales College, Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island, and is an electrical en- gineer, retired. He is a candidate for the LL.B. degree. Everybody in the class recalls his per- petual preparedness. No matter whether the rest of us stumbled over or remained silent concerning any subject or case, he had it all written down in his notebook, and was always ready to save the class from qualifying as a lot of “Dumb Doras” in the professor’s mind. He will continue to study, interspersing it with visits to the few remaining countries of the globe to w r hich he has not paid his respects. MURDOCK A. CAMPBELL Northfield, Vermont “Doc” had the LL.B. degree conferred upon him by National in 1925. Knowing that “He who would bring home the wealth of the Indies must first take the wealth of the Indies with him,” Mr. Campbell returned to National for the LL.M. and M.P.L. degrees. He has the rank of Lieutenant- Colonel in the National Guard, and served over- seas during the World War. He is married, is already privileged to add “Attorney at Law” to his name, as he has been admitted to the Bar in his native State. At present he is doing War De- partment duty, but he expects to resume practice in Vermont in the near future. He is a member of the Phi Alpha Delta Legal Fraternity, the I.O.O.F., American Legion, 40-8, Second Division Association, Vermont Bar Association, and Ameri- can Bar Association. “Doc” is a busy man, you see. 68 THE POCKET J. GORDON CANFIELD Passaic, N. J. Not so many years hence, sight seeing busses on passing through the town of Passaic, will say to their awe-struck listeners, “In this town was born that distinguished and celebrated patriot and law- yer, J. Gordon Canfield.” While wating for fame and his LL.M. (he received his LL.B. from Na- tional last year) he is acting as Secretary to Rep- resentative George N. Seger of his home state. He belongs to the Masons and the American Legion and enjoys any kind of outdoor sport. He is still single, his hunting trips so far having been con- fined to “BIG GAME” instead of “DEARS”. He was chosen best debater in the third Miller-Alvey debate in 1925. We wonder if his proclivity for doing a little talking himself is what keeps him single. After looking at his picture again, we’re sure, girls, you’ll agree with us that that must be the only reason. During the war J. Gordon helped put the 30th Service Company, of the Signal Corps on the map. They do say that’s what made him such a proficient wigwagger to distressed fellow students on their feet to answer an oral quizz. His motto is “Keep Smilin’,” which let’s you into the little secret of why he is so popular with his classmates. JOHN H. CANNON Pocatello, Idaho Before coming to National “Jack” completed a business course at the Alexander Hamilton Insti- tute, New York City, and a course in cooperative marketing at the University of Pennsylvania. He is now occupied as auditor in the Treasury Depart- ment. He has a long and creditable Civil Service record. At the age of twenty-two he was ap- pointed Civilian Chief Storekeeper and Rating Chief Clerk at the United States Naval Ordnance Plant, Charleston, West Virginia, being the young- est chief clerk on the Civil Service register at the time. Although he declares he is single, it cer- tainly looks as if that civic status will undergo a change soon. After starting out boldly in his first year, not only in the classroom, class meetings, et cetera, but also on the debating forum, he suddenly subsided into one of our quietest members. Some- thing queer, you’ll have to admit! After receiving the LL.B. and LL.M. degrees, he intends to engage in the general practice of law in the District of Columbia and Massachusetts. (We can’t imagine why “and Massachusetts,” but we’ll leave that to him.) 69 THE POCKET HOWARD BLAGKMAR GHAPPELLE Boston, Massachusetts The name sounds like the Back Bay, doesn’t it? But even the Center of the Universe lends some of its citizens to the Nation’s Capital, and so the Tax Payer is content and the Tax Dodger is not, while “Chap” audits income tax accounts for Uncle Sam. ’Tis no fun to juggle figures all day, so “the Ole Swimmin’ Hole” receives some of the auditor’s attention. Of course, for a bright fellow like this, studying law is no bother — but it is rather tire- some to sit still for two hours every night but Sunday. Nevertheless, Howard Blackmar is faith- ful. He came over to National, after two years at Georgetown University Law School, to finish the quest for the LL.B. degree. After a year and a half with the American Expeditionary Forces in France, attached to the 101st Engineers, 26th Divi- sion, everything else seems rather tame, but he expects to have thrills a plenty playing the law game in the District of Columbia. He is a mem- ber of the Benevolent and Protective Order of Elks. PETER VINCENT CHESNUL Youngstown, Ohio “Ches”, who is a native of the Buckeye State, started on the sea of legal problems in George Washington University but came to National in 1925. He was a member of the Columbia Debat- ing Society at George Washington. Unfortunately, for us, he came too late to participate in debating at National. As soon as he is able to add an LL.B. to his signature he expects to practice in his home town. From our short acquaintance with him, we have found him to be a very conscientious student and a jolly good fellow. The only reason we can see for his “single blessedness” is that there must be some little girl in Ohio waiting for him. We only hope she is worthy of you “Ches” ! 70 T Ht POCKET FRANK CONINGSBY CHOATE Brooklyn, New York We are not saying that “Coney” can charge his pseudonym to propinquity to “The Island” of pre- Volstead tourists’ delight. But we do wonder whether his wife calls him Coningsby when he plays the races too heavily and none too success- fully. However all that may be, “Coney” is all right. Judging from the start he made as a “freshie,” after he has been awarded the LL.B. degree, has been admitted to a Bar (he doesn ' t tell us what particular jurisdiction he expects to thrill with his forensic oratory), and has made a start-off in the race for legal honors, he will come in on the home-stretch a close second to the illus- trious “Uncle Rufus” of the same patronymic. For back in those pristine days of f reshmanhood, our “Coney” could out-question even Mr. Justice Sid - dons, and (almost) out-talk Professor Munter. But the latter months of schoolnights have con- vinced us that “The Hill” holds the beacon light that twinkles in the forward path of Frank Con- ingsby. (If you do not know just what we mean by that, drop in on the House or the Senate some- time and note the vacant seats.) But no matter what he tackles, from horse racing to law making, his classmates know he will reach the goal. DONALD W. CLAYTON Arlington, Virginia The “Colonel,” or the “Judge,” as he is more often called, is a rather quiet fellow, who has firmly established himself in the esteem of his classmates. One never hears much from him un- less, perchance, one of his classmates is absent for several consecutive nights and he appoints himself a committee of one to investigate the circumstances. We appreciate the interest the “Colonel” has taken in us, and assure him that it is mutual. Not satis- fied with the lone LL.B. degree he is candidate for M.P.L., and contemplates staying at the school until he has obtained the LL.M. degree. While working toward this end, he is putting into practice some of the things he learned about Real Property — he is a real estate title chain clerk. His future plans are indefinite, he insists, but we prognosti- cate a successful future for him wherever he may decide to take up the practice of law, or in what- ever way he may make use of his knowledge of the subject. 71 THE POCKET ANNA MULLEN CLEARY Dutrict of Columbia Miss Cleary graduated from the old Academy of the Holy Cross at the age of sixteen, after which she spent four years in the study of voice culture and music. In 1922 she entered National Univer- sity Law School to gratify a long standing desire to take the LL.B. degree from the same school in which her three brothers had studied, two of them being winners of the McArthur Gold Medal upon their graduation in the early nineties. Miss Cleary kept their pace, and in her junior year was awarded the Hurst Gold Medal. She is now candidate for the LL.M. degree. CAMPBELL C. COCHRAN Big Stone Gap, Virginia Just look around for the biggest man in the school and if it isn ' t “Kid " brother, it ' s “Camp” himself. We don ' t know how big is the Stone, or how wide is the Gap, of Big Stone Gap, but we do know that it sent out into the world one of its citizens, in the person of “Camp,” who does noth- ing on a small scale. He matches his achieve- ments with his size. When the call came in 1917, he answered, and for seventeen moths he served in France, attached to the French Army as Ser- geant, 1st Class, Air Service Mechanics. He par- ticipated in six major operations, but came out ready for the next fracas. And so, since the be- ginning, we have been seeing The Big Camp “sitting in” on about everything going. Now we know why he has been so much in evidence — LL.B., LL.M., M.P.L. ! He amuses himself with radio, and is becoming so expert in the science or art, that we expect to see him add to the rest of his degrees the “lightning mark,” Chief of the Radio Fans, or something similar. THE POCKET! WILLIAM COGGER Lowell, Massachusetts Mr. Cogger (His nickname is “Bill,” but we don’t dare call him that, as he is already a practicing attorney) has had a wide and varied experience. For thirty years he led the busy life of a news- paper man, then decided to study law. He en- tered the Knights of Columbus Law School in Washington, where he was awarded the LL.B. degree. In the autumn of 1925 he entered Na- tional, where he is candidate for the LL.M. degree. He has already been admitted to the Bar of the District of Columbia, and is actively engaged in practice. He served with the 15th Massachusetts Infantry during the Spanish-American War, and had active service during the World War. In the Moot Court he handled the legal phraseology with such ease and familiarity that his “first ap- pearance” fellow Mooters looked at him with awe-struck surprise and envy. It would be super- fluous for us to wish him well, as he is already so completely “arrived,” so we merely express our humble appreciation of our association with him. HARRY LEONARD COHEN Washington, D. C. No, this is not “Cohen on the Telephone,” who made the Victor people famous. But wait! Give Harry a chance! When he has received the LL.B. degree, for which he is a candidate, passes the “D. C. Bar,” and turns over the management of the store to someone not learned in the law, he will show that Telephone Cohen where to get off in the fame-making game. In the meantime, if you are a fan yourself, and watch for him, you will find him in the “step lively” throng around Ball Park Gate on Baseball Days. He is a mem- ber of the Phi Alpha (College) Fraternity, and of the Tau Epsilon Rho (Legal) Fraternity. He has not yet joined the Benedicts’ Club, but he will square himself with the community in that direc- tion in due time. 73 THE POCKET STEPHEN F. COLLADAY Washington, D. C. After driving all over “No Man’s Land” with a caterpiller tank for about ten months, “Steve” decided to study law for excitment. Before start- ing to commence, however, he made up his mind that France was not good enough for a certain little French girl, so he escorted her to the States as Mrs. Colladay. He inherits the love for the law from his father, who is a prominent attorney in the District, and we are sure that the office of Colladay and Son will be a big success. Steve is a member of the Columbia Country Club and the Congressional Country Club, so that you can readily guess that his hobby is golf. At least, it is one of his hobbies — the other is the chocolate sundae. During the fifteen minutes intermission between classes he could always be found across the street at the “Smiling Greek’s” with a big chocolate sundae in front of him, looking as if law was the thing farthest from his mind. He is a candidate for the LL.B. degree. FRANK J. COLLINS Philadelphia, Pennsylvania “Smiling Frank” will never be forgotten as our classmate who made us forget the tedious work ahead with that always-smiling countenance of his and his inexhaustible bag of jokes that he was ever ready to “spill” if he had any listeners. Frank’s wildest pastime, next to telling jokes and studying law, is dancing. He is candidate for the LL.B. de- gree. He participated in the school debates, and is a member of Sigma Delta Kappa Legal Fraternity. He expects to return to the Quaker City to practice law when he finishes his course, and if his deter- mination counts for anything he will win all of his cases. Good luck, Frank! 74 THE POCKET LAWRENCE DENNIS CONNOR Washington, D. C. “Larry,” alias “T. Percy Gushing,” the heart- breaker of Moot Court fame, gives our “Del” a close race in the “handsome is” handicap. Those of us who have occupied rear seats these three years have long since lost count of the coupons he has clipped in the way of hearts — and yet Lawrence Dennis bids fair to hold out a “single- blessedness” hand for that precious diploma on “Sadday” night, June 12, ’26. Never mind, Dainty Darlings, ’twill not always be so! For, harken ye, Fair Ones, “Larry” says his hobby is parking! But we can’t tell you much in this line, any more than we can about this young man’s professional plans, for, when asked personal questions, his looks spelled “secret.” However, judging from his ready answers and intelligent come-backs in Pro- fessor Anderson’s class in Government Contracts and Claims, we have doped out for ourselves that our Lothario expects to tell Uncle Sam where to get off in the Court of Claims. (And we are not trying to play the role of Class Prophet, either.) GEORGE F. COOK Washington, D. C. “Doc” Cook (not related to the explorer) is a thoroughbred Washingtonian and a true-blue De- fender of the Flag. He served with Troop K, 6th U. S. Cavalry, in China during the Boxer Up- rising of 1900-1901, and in the Philippine Islands during the Insurrection of 1900-1903. During the World War he served as Captain in the Quarter- master Corps, from 1917 to 1920. He is a member of the United Spanish War Veterans, Masonic Lodge, American Legion, Sojourners’ Club, Dis- abled Emergency Officers’ Association, and the D.A.V. Military Order of the World War. His peacetime specialties are football and baseball. He has already taken his stand in the Legal Bread- line, as secretary in the office of a law firm, and as soon as he has received the LL.B. degree for which he is working betimes, he expects to move up to the head of the aforesaid line as an Attorney at Law. In other words, he expects to make things hum in District law circles. And he will! 75 THE POCKET JAY D. COULTER Salem, Oregon “All Nature wears one universal grin.” “Shorty” came to National from Willamette Uni- versity, Oregon, well loaded with smiles and de- grees. He entered with A.B. and LL.B. degrees, and now is candidate for M.P.L. He expects to “hit the trail” back to Oregon after he has polished up his educational shield a bit more, and has had a fling at Washington experience. He served with the United States Navy during the World War, and is a member of the Veterans of Foreign Wars, the Military Order of the Cootie, the Bachelors’ Club of the World, and the Phi Kappa Pi Frater- nity. His ever-ready smile has won for him many friends and his happy outlook on life makes him welcome in all fraternal circles. We can’t imagine that he will ever be reprimanded by the Court for browbeating a witness — he will just smile the de- sired information out of the most stubborn and hostile occupant of the witness chair. LOYOLA MARY COYNE East Providence, Rhode Island “A willing heart, a helpful hand, “Always ready on demand.” That’s Loyola Mary. She holds quite a record in school activities. In the first year she was elected Vice-President of the class and Secretary of the Cy Pres Club. In the second year she was influential in organizing the Inez Milholland Memorial Chapter of the National Woman’s Party, and was first Secretary and then Chairman of the Chapter. When the Law Review was started she became its subscription manager. In class work she proved herself one of the leaders from the be- ginning, and she has kept the pace ever since. Her favorite pastime is swimming, but she is an all-round athletic girl. She is at present secretary to the Judge Advocate General of the Army, and there are no steps too high for her to climb. Her plans? “To be United States Attorney General, or Judge of the United States Supreme Court.’’ (Page the Shade of Belva Lockwood!) 76 THE POCKET WILLIAM BUTTERWORTH CROWELL Jefferson, Ohio From the “Garden of Eden in Ohio” comes “Bill” (of course, “Bill”). We do not know under which planet he was born, but his star must have pre- dicted a diversity of experiences for him. We find that he holds in his possession two honorable discharges from the District of Columbia National Guard prior to the Spanish-American war. In 1899 he was made president of the “Columbian- Corcoran Society,” Columbia University, and is a charter member of the “Needham Debating So- ciety,” George Washington University. In 1902 he was seized with stage fever, and prepared to play with Minnie Maddern Fiske in “Becky Sharpe.” (We don’t know what happened to his theatrical aspirations). After this he took to the gentle art of fencing; then to boxing. No, no, not with the idea of holding a championship, but for retaining his Adonis-like figure. He is a member of Kappa Alpha (Southern) Fraternity, and is an attorney in the Judge Advocate General’s Office, Navy De- partment. He is a candidate for the LL.B. degree, is a Patent Attorney, and expects to farm and practice law. He was elected Grandfather in No- vember, 1925. CARMEN DANTE D’AGOSTINO Atlantic City, New Jersey “Dagy” — Carmen Dante (what an illustrious, if incongruous, combination!) — our Board Walk Demosthenes, answered the What-are-the-wild- waves-saying question by coming to Washington to study law. After a time spent at Georgetown University Law School he joined forces with Na- tional, where he is a candidate for the LL.B. and M.P.L. degrees. His business in life at present, is being a student — and a conscientious, faithful one he is. Unfortunately, “Dagy” receives no aid from Domestic Relations — he’s single. But he enlivens the occupation now and then by taking a fling at basket ball. He is a member of the Delta Chi Fraternity. When it is all over but the real business of life, he expects to go to Sunny Italy and practice law at Mersina. Success to you, Carmen Dante ! 77 T HI POCKET NEWEL G. DAINES Preston, Idaho “The Great Dane” entered National in 1925 from the University of Utah, where he was a mem- ber of the Friar’s Club. Since coming to National he has done his bit in class election campaigns, and in the organization of the Rocky Mountain Law Club, of which he is Vice-President. While earn- ing his LL.B. he is helping his “Uncle Samuel” in the capacity of accountant, but as soon as he can attach those self same letters to his name, he and Mrs. Daines expect to go back west where he can do a little wild game hunting while practicing law. We wish you both the best of luck, our only regret being that you did not join us sooner. I. FONTAINE DAVISON Oklahoma City, Oklahoma At home they call him “Bobby,” at work “Davy,” but when he is awarded the LL.B., and goes back to Oklahoma to practice, it will be after being “Mr. Davison, if you please, sor.” “Davy” started with us in ’23, and since that time we have always found him to be a true gentleman and scholar, with only a few bad habits, such as smok- ing his pipe, fishing, and telling what a fine wife he has. He served with the United States Marines from 1898 to 1905, and saw service in the Philip- pines and the Panama Canal Zone. He is a mem- ber of the Masons, Veterans of Foreign Wars, and the Spanish War Veterans. He has demonstrated his ability as a trial lawyer in several debates, acquitting himself with credit. Judging from his past, we are sure that in after years the Class of ’26 will be proud to count amongst its number “Bobby Davison.” 78 the; pocket FRANK A. DAWSON Washington, D. C. “Seaweed” belongs to that almost extinct race of human beings known as “Native Born Washing- tonians,” more familiarly known as “Cave Dwell- ers.” To date the greater share of his eventful career has been spent in gaining knowledge, al- though he is spending his spare time at present as an Examiner in the Civil Service Commission. He enlisted in 1917 as a private in the Engineer Corps, Gas and Flame Division, and stayed in until an honorable discharge in 1919 sent him back to his studies. “All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy,” and “Seaweed” being a firm believer in signs, takes no chances and so one is liable to find him out on the links in the early morning, or in the late evening in the ball room, and between times he takes a turn at breaking a few of the numerous traffic laws of the District. He is a member of Sigma Phi Epsilon and the Delta Theta Phi Fraternity, and of the Nu Sigma Omicron, of Maryland University. He is a candidate for an LL.B. and expects to practice in the District or in Florida as soon as “FATE” (in the way of a wedding in the near future) permits. W. FRANCIS DELANEY Washington, D. C. Quiet and unoffending, young and filled with ambition! W. Francis holds the degree of B.C.S. from the National University School of Business Administration. He is at pres ent occupied as au- ditor in the Bureau of Internal Revenue. He en- tered National, as a candidate for the LL.B. degree, in 1925. Married? Of course, — what would be his chance of escape? His favorite pastime is playing golf and tennis, and he may be seen on any bright morning down in Potomac Park, keep- ing in trim. He expects to specialize in corporation law, and is ambitious to become comptroller of some large corporation. No matter if “ambition is a glorious cheat,” we hope our confrere, Delaney, will get what he wants. And if he does, the street will know him as a “big corporation lawyer.” 79 the: pocket LEE FORREST DENTON Asheville, North Carolina Lee is a native of the good old south, and the Land of the Sky, North Carolina. It seems that most of the members of our class who have gained success along any line of endeavor have had as their inspiration a charming wife, and Lee is not an exception. During the World War, he was a member of the Psychological Board, Officers’ Train- ing School. At present he is Assistant Reviewer of Claims in the United States Veterans Bureau. Lee was chairman of the dance committee for National University in 1924. His success in this line is well known to the members of the class who attended school dances that year, for dancing is one of his hobbies. Lee is also a hunter, although he refuses to state just what he most enjoys hunt- ing. He is a Thirty-Second Degree Mason, and a Shriner. He is a member of the North Carolina Bar, which he successfully passed in August, 1924. Lee’s appreciation of National is emphasized by his donating the Emma Deal Denton Memorial Gold Medal for the best final examination paper in Equity Pleading. He is also a candidate for the degrees, LL.B. and LL.M. and expects to prac- tice law in his native Tar Heel State. JAMES P. DONOVAN Washington, D. C. Jimmy is a happy-go-lucky chap who is always on hand if there is work to be done. He has served the class faithfully on numerous committees, and as its Vice-President for 1926. He is a lover of all the ordinary sports, and takes a turn at any one, according to the circumstances. We’ve never encountered him in the Traffic Court, but we imagine it is because he is one of those rare birds known to pedestrians as careful speed maniacs. When there is nothing for him to do to help the class or his fraternity along he amuses himself by working for the District, as Assistant Engineer of the Surface Division. He is a member of the Knights of Columbus, Potomac Council No. 433, and the Phi Beta Gamma Legal Fraternity, and is a candidate for the LL.B. degree. His future plans are undecided but we wouldn’t be surprised to hear the wedding bells ring soon, for a chap like Jimmie can’t escape the chains of matrimony long. After that he will doubtless settle down to practice law in the District. A few years hence, when we come back to town, we will find his name near the top of the list of leading lawyers — maybe we’ll find him “sitting on the Bench.” 80 THE POCKET MYRON G. EHRLICH District of Columbia Ehrlich was born in Baltimore, Maryland, and re- ceived his early education in the public and private schools of Washington, graduating from Emerson Institute. He received his LL.B. degree last year and is now a candidate for the M.P.L. degree. Despite his youth he is a member of the District of Columbia Bar and is practicing law in the Dis- trict. Myron is particularly fond of dancing, base- ball, golf and boxing. The good wishes of the class go with him. MICHAEL B. EISENBERG Washington, D. C. “Spark Plug” or “Mitzi,” as he ' s known to the fair sex, came amongst us for the purpose of ob- taining an LL.M., having already copped off his LL.B. at St. Lawrence University. He spent two years of his budding youth in the Reserve Officers ' Training Camp, and has distinguished himself in the line of athletics, being a four-letter man in High School and a three-letter man in his Freshman year at college. He ’s strong for all the main out- door sports and manages to look more like a “pro- fessional” than a lawyer on the dance floor. His literary aspirations have included the editorship of his high school paper, New York City, and of Athletics in the City College of the same Big Town. He is a member of Iota Theta Fraternity, (New York), and of the New York Law Club, of Na- tional. If Zeigfield doesn ' t see him dance, we are sure he’ll grow to be a fine lawyer and will be a credit to the profession. 81 THE POCKET GERHARD A. ELLESTAD Minneapolis, Minnesota A native of — don’t make the mistake of saying St. Paul — Minneapolis, and is still in the throes of single blessedness. He received his B.A. from St. Olaf College, in 1919, but got his first taste of the law in the Patent Office, as Assistant Examiner, and liked it so well that he is among us as a can- didate for LL.B. and M.P.L., with the idea of going into the Patent Law practice for himself. Judging from the concise and lucid manner in which he answers all questions in the Patent Law class, he will not write a “broad claim” for his client when he should write a “narrow claim,” nor will he let his unwary inventor-client fall into any disastrous “interference” trap. Here’s to you, and the best of success, “Gerry”! If the inventing bee ever stings us, will look you up ! BLANCHE HARRIET ENTERLINE Tamaqua, Pennsylvania If the name doesn’t sound familiar, look at the picture, and you will recognize this sweet young lady whose bright smiles and cheerful cooperation have helped to take away the monotony of the nightly grind in the classroom work. Many have dropped from our ranks from year to year, but Blanche is a “sticker,” and when she receives her LL.B. and enters the practice of law, we know from our association with her, that she will be- come Pennsylvania’s best woman lawyer. She participated in debating in her second year, and promises to be a real orator. She had the distinc- tion of being President of the Cy Pres Club of the school, and she is a member of Omicron Chapter, Kappa Beta Pi Legal Sorority, Lafayette Lodge Chapter, Order Eastern Star, and Women’s City Club of Washington. We are all your well wishers, Blanche, and are expecting great things of you. 82 THE POCKET JOHN H. ESSLER Winnebago, Minnesota The “DUKE” himself. Now draw up, me hearties, while I tell you the tale of a man’s man and the Great and Bloodly Battle of the War College. Born in the wild and wooley West, he has threaded a devious way, arriving in our midst, battle-scarred but now single. When at play he is known as an Auditor in the Income Tax Divi- sion, United States Treasury, but when he dons his armour and is arrayed for the fray, he dashes madly into the midst of the roaring War College, where he is wildly hailed, “THE DUKE”! He is emerging from all this chaos a member of Sigma Nu Phi, the Veterans of Foreign Wars, (the Navy having developed his war-like manner during the years from 1907 to 1922), the Washington City Club, Sigma Mu Sigma, and the War College. It is only necessary to add that he has served as Registrar of Exchequer of Sigma Nu Phi, Master of Sigma Mu Sigma, and CHANCELLOR OF THE WAR COLLEGE, for you to know in what high regard he is held by his fellow sufferers. He in- tends that all this shall but be the means by which he shall reach his desired goal, i.e., LL.B., and then the practice of law in the great SOME- WHERE. We’re all for you, “Duke”! MERLIN MADDOX EVANS Washington, D. C. “Merl,” the “Duke,” belongs to one of the “noble families” of Washington — in other words, he’s a Native. After his candidacy for the LL.B. degree has reached its successful culmination, and the marriage ceremony is safely over, he expects to keep right on writing patent specifications. He is associated with his father and uncle in the Patent Law game, so he can eliminate the “starvation period” that some of our professors have told us about, and that some of us must face. Lucky young man! No wonder he enjoys “gallivanting.” His school activities, aside from his classroom work, have been confined, for the most part, to working for the Phi Beta Gamma Fraternity. He has been present at the school dances and banquets, dancing and dinning being two of his special specialties. He intends to linger a bit longer in the National halls, in order to obtain the M.P.L. degree. 83 THE POCKET MARTHA LILLIAN FELIX Williamsburg, Pennsylvania “Marsi” is just a pretty, unsophisticated young lady who joined the class at the beginning of our last year and who has helped us through our last long mile with her pleasant smiles. She has not been with us long enough to take a very conspicu- ous part in class activities, but she has been faith- ful in her attendance, and is an intelligent and appreciative student. She is a candidate for the LL.B. degree, and expects to return to Pennsyl- vania to practice law. She is a member of the Three Thirty Eight Club of Washington, and her hobbies are golf, dancing, and swimming, all of which she can do to an enviable degree of per- fection. What are we going to do without you, Marsi, when you leave us? That’s the question that some of the members of the u Stav in Washing- ton” Club are asking. LEGRAND J. P. FIGHTHORN W illim antic, Connecticut From the land where friedcakes are friedcakes and not doughnuts, and where that lovely fruit the nutmeg is grown, comes “Fitch.” Further, if you should happen to ask him the name of our National anthem, without the slightest hesitation he would answer “Yankee Doodle.” He came to us this year from Georgetown University, single but “almost persuaded.” He is a member of the Phi Alpha Mu Sigma (Academic) Fraternity, Gamma Eta Gamma (Legal) Fraternity, and of the Masonic Club. During the war he held down the title of Ensign in Uncle Sam’s Navy, and we understand from good authority (no less than the Secretary of the Navy) that at least half a dozen German Submarine Commanders turned a sickly green and said “Home, James,” on beholding, through their periscopes, our hero walking the boards of a United States battleship. Since leav- ing the Navy he has been helping straighten out some of our Interstate Commerce tangles, but we understand that as soon as he gets his LL.B. degree he is going back (not “to Alabama”) but to Hart- ford, where he will enter a law office. Here’s best wishes for good luck and success! 84 THE POCKET PAUL FLAHERTY Fitchburg, Massachusetts A product of the ‘‘Bay State” and a good old fighting stock — look at the name! The blood of his ancestors has stood him well in the past, as his Army record for 1918-19 will show, and we feel sure that it will carry him through many a legal battle-royal in the future. He has not yet been caught in that snare which makes a man say “I do” and “I will,” so he has some battles coming to him about which he knows nothing at all. How- ever, he is a good sport, and is liable to take a chance some day. He loves the great outdoors and all the sports that keep him there. After he leaves us with his LL.B. degree tucked under his arm in the form of a diploma, we may find him following that great open-air past-time of cam- paigning and stump speaking over the country. We wish him luck and hope to see him a resident of The Hill someday. EUCLID S. FLEMING, JR. Washington, D. C. Known among his friends as “Duke,” and still enjoying the isolation and freedom of bachelor- hood, Euclid has been improving his time in more ways than one. He is an expert swimmer and canoeist, and spends his working hours as a patent examiner. Educationally he has also been indus- trious and holds the degree of M.E. from George Washington University, graduating in 1923. He has been an active participant in affairs at Na- tional; a strenuous debater in both the debating societies; assistant editor of the Law Review dur- ing 1924-25; is present at all the school and class affairs; and owes fraternal allegiance to Sigma Delta Kappa. He learned early in Moot Court that a declaration consists of more than a bill of particulars, but was unable to convince Professor Johnson that a bill in equity is not subject to a demurrer. He is a member of the Washington Canoe Club, and was enrolled in the Student Army Training Corps during his work at George Wash- ington University. He intends to practice patent law in the District of Columbia, following the course already laid out. 85 COURTNEY M. FLETCHER Washington, D. C. Courtney is another one of these yere Washing- tonians, and he can say “Yes indeedy” to perfec- tion. He is a specialist in “a hole in one” at the Nineteenth Hole, and as for dancing, — well, girls, the “Sheik of Araby” has nothing on him. He’s strong for the movies BUT, just say “waffles,” or casually mention “pie a la mode,” and golf, danc- ing, movies, girls, studies, whatnot, drop into the background. He really would make a fine Arrow Collar Ad or an Aunt Jemimy Waffle Flour Ad. He served faithfully and well in the High School Cadets and was a “knock-out” in his uniform. He is a member of Sigma Delta Kappa Law Fraternity, holding the honorary title of “GRAND KEEPER OF THE GOATS AND CUSTARD PIES.” With it all, though, he is a very conscientious student and will well merit his sheepskin with LL.B. en- graved on it. And now to dash all feminine hopes to the ground, we’ll confide in you the secret that all his future plans are centered around a certain au- burn-haired young miss, with the background of specializing in patent infringement cases. FREDERICK L. FLYNN New York City The curtain goes up, the orchestra strikes off “The Sidewalks of New York,” and on to the stage steps the subject of this sketch. From the first day that “Freddy” joined us his aggressive but genial spirit won for him a host of friends. He has been conspicuous in all the class activities. As a mem- ber of the debating societies he demonstrated his oratorical ability. During his second year at school he successfully met and passed the Virginia Bar, and is at present engaged in the active prac- tice in the city of Alexandria. Flynn is one of the trio that constitute the staff of “The Docket.” Girls this smiling son of Erin is still single but claims that he has no intention of remaining so. He is a candidate for the LL.B. and M.P.L. degrees, and expects to continue the practice of law in the historic old Virginia City, Alexandria. Good luck, Freddy, in whatever enterprise you enter. Your classmates feel sure that success awaits you. 86 THE POCKET JOHN H. FOLSOM Portsmouth, Ohio “Jack,” as he is known among his friends, has stored up the necessary requirements for the LL.B. degree, and so, for some months (during the Gold Rush, to be exact) he has been sojourning in the Sunny Land of Crocodiles and Land Sharks. But he expects to come up from Florida in time to join the procession at Continental Memorial Hall, June 12. Mr. Folsom has not confined his activities to the real estate game, as witness: Married; Member of Sigma Nu Phi (Legal) Fraternity, Sigma Mu Sigma (Academic) Fraternity, Ameri- can Legion, Veterans of Foreig n Wars (Walter Reed Equality Post), Disabled American Veterans of the World War (Ace Chapter), Masonic Lodge Aurora 48, F.A.M., Portsmouth, Ohio, Apperson Chapter and Council Masonic Lodge, Ashland, Ky. During the late war he served as First Lieutenant, Engineers, in France. A man like that couldn’t fail if he tried ! ARTHUR HARTMAN FORD Washington, D. C. Arthur (not Henry) entered National from Georgetown in 1925. During his high school days he was an officer in the High School Cadets, and he is now a Mason and a Woodman of the World. He is justly proud of the fact that he has made his own way since he was twelve years of age, and a good job of it he has made, too, for he has worked his way through the grades, high school and college. His list of hobbies includes collect- ing books, playing tennis, riding horseback, and indulging in all the other out-door sports. So far he has not chronicled taking a fling at the greatest of indoor sports, but we can’t believe that such a rattling all-round good sport as our “Lizzy” will long refrain from a swimming match in the sea matrimony. (Mixed metaphor, but no matter, girls; here’s an excellent husband for one of you). He expects to continue his studies until he wins LL.B., then LL.M. ; after that he intends to practice at his chosen profession, perhaps “in our midst.” Good luck, Old Man! 87 T HE POCKET DELMOUR J. FUQUA Washington, D. C. It’s the same old question. “Who ' s the handsome young man just coming in?” — was asked in a stage whisper, by a visitor, one night not so long ago in Moot Court, and of course the answer was “Del ’ It ' s a good thing he has been well pro- tected during his three years at National or there ' s no telling the length of the string of hearts he might have departed with along with his LL.B. He was born in OL ' Virginny but has spent the most of his eventful young life in the Capitol City, w’here he is now ' employed under some high sound- ing title in the Chesapeake and Potomac Telephone Company. He ' s an all-round sport, listing among his likes tennis, sw ' imming, aquaplaning, fast driv- ing, dancing, and bridge. He has shown his met- tle in school activities as w ' ell as in sports. He served a term as president of the Alvey Debating Society in his freshman year, and of the Miller Debating Society during his junior year and a term as business manager of the National Uni- versity Law Review ' . He is a member of the Sig- ma Phi Epsilon, an affiliation which dates back to his prc-legal days in George Washington Univer- sity. ROBERT A. GABRIEL Cazenovia, New York “Gabe” is another of our classmates from the Empire State. During his stay at National, he has been a conscientious and earnest student of the law’, from Domestic Relations to Extraordinary Legal Remedies, up and down the line. His quiet manner around the corridors of the school has made him a host of friends. He seeks to avoid arguments outside of the “Great Moot Court,” and some of us have wmndered if his quiet manner is the result of being out-talked at home. Yes, girls, he is married! Besides being a draftsman, he keeps step with the army of men and women who chase the little golf ball over the green. “Gabe” is fraternally inclined, for in addition to belonging to the Phi Beta Legal Fraternity, the Macabees, he is a “Philomethesion” (whatever that is), and a member of the Young Men’s Club. His plans for the future, he tells us, are to start the practice of the law’ in the District. Armed with his LL.B. degree, and w ' ith the Bar behind, he will not only start — he will keep going! THE POCKET LEO J. GAUDETTE Worcester, Massachusetts “Frenchie” spent the years just prior to his join- ing us in selling real estate in his home town in the Great Bay State. He obtained B.S. (in Business) and LL.B. degrees at National last year and is back with us this year for the M.A. and LL.M. He is a member of the Massachusetts Law Club, Phi Beta Gamma, and the Washington Hunt Club. He has taken quite an active part in legal debating and was a member of the oratory class in the School of Business Administration. He spent eight months in the Reserve Officers , Training Corps, and we’ve decided the cavalry lost a good man when Leo decided to be a lawyer, for he is at home in the saddle, horseback riding being his favorite pastime. He is still single and not yet changing his mind, so he says, confidentially. But we’ve observed that when one assumes an air of mystery in discussing this partic- ular matter, it is “under advisement.” Neverthe- less, girls, there may be a chance here for one of you to shape the destiny of a man. Just think of the good material you have to work on! SYDNEY BERT GOLDMAN Baltimore, Maryland “Syd” first saw the light of day in the Monu- mental City, not so many years ago, as you can see for yourself. He entered National in 1925. He is a member of the Upsilon Lambda Phi — University of Maryland. He takes to sports like a duck takes to water — baseball, basketball, la- crosse, and the rest. He’s a fast worker, is Sydney, for not only is he a crack sportsman, but he is in the wholesale business of equipping others to go and do likewise — “Wholesale Sporting Goods and Novelties,” says the Goldman sign. But some- body else will have to take charge of the sporting goods business after Sydney acquires the LL.B. de- gree, for he expects to practice law in his native state. And would you believe it — he’s married! 89 THE POCKET JOHN E. GOTHNER Superior, Wisconsin John hails from somewhere up near Iceland, but the chill winds of his native heath have not affected the warmth of his friendships, as his brothers of Sigma Delta Kappa stand ready to testify. He spent four years in the National Guard and a year in the Students’ Army Training Corps, and after starting out to earn his living as a Secretary, fell in love with that elusive mistress, “THE LAW.” We don’t dare say too much about the Gentleman from Wisconsin, as he is one of our cartoonists, and there’s no telling to what extent he might go in retaliation. The only Bar he says he is a mem- ber of is a “BRASS” one. He already has a Jr. A.B. degree, acquired in the Wisconsin State Teachers’ College in 1923; LL.B. is next. After that he expects to inaugurate the very modest plan of annexing a Senatorship, but we’d like to see him fill a Cabinet Chair. His main hobby is hunting, but hunting what, he fails to divulge, — nuff sed. LOUIS A. GRAVELLE Washington, D. C. In a community where voting is permissible Louis’ personality and winning way would send him up the political ladder. As it is, those same assets, plus the legal knowledge gained at National, will win him a goodly list of clients. He received the degree, Bachelor of Commercial Science, from the Washington School of Accountancy, and at present is acting as accountant for a law firm. As soon as he receives his LL.B. degree and as soon thereafter as he is admitted to practice he will become the junior member of the aforesaid law concern. Louis saw service in the United States Navy during the World War. He is married, and is a baseball fan. He is affiliated with Delta Theta Phi Legal Fraternity. 90 THE POCKET V. EGCLESTON GRAVES Leonardtown, Maryland The Eastern Shore of Maryland, famous for its oysters and other varieties of sea food, sends V. Eccleston to us. He is one of our “happy tho’ married” men, and a member of the Sigma Nu Phi Legal Fraternity. He helps to keep our income tax returns straight as an auditor for the Income Tax Unit of the Treasury Department. And say, have you heard him sing? If you haven’t, your’re out of luck. He has already made the grade as far up the Hill of Success as the LL.B. station, and is still going strong on the way to the LL.M. stopping point. After that, we fancy nothing can stop him till he has reached the summit, over which hang the mystic letters S.A.A.L. (Figure out their mean- ing for yourself.) NORMAN A. GRAY Bethesda, Maryland “Gravey” has traveled with the class with courage and enthusiasm and will leave an enviable record behind him not only in the scholastic line but also in his participation in all of the activities of the school. As Freshman he served faithfully and well on the Social Committee, as Freshman and Sophomore he has rung up his mark in both the Alvey and Miller Debating societies, and as Senior he is guarding the Treasury of The Docket . While at Washington “Prep” he became a member of Alpha Chapter of Omega Beta Sigma, and since coming to National has acquired a speaking ac- quaintance with certain Greek letters, — Phi Beta Gamma. In January of this year, even before finishing his course at our Alma Mater, he passed the North Carolina Bar, and has been admitted to the Court of Appeals of the District of Colum- bia. He is a member of the Bar of the State of Georgia, member of the Court of Claims, and of the Modern Woodmen of America, Camp No. 12,560, Washington, D. C. He is a candidate for everything that looks like a law degree at Na- tional,— LL.B. (1926), LL.M. and M.P.L. 1927. 91 T HE POCKET EARL GRAY GRIGSBY Tollesboro, Kentucky Another Kentuckian! Although now claiming the District as his domicile, Earl still maintains that ‘‘there’s no place like home” — the home of beautiful women, thoroughbred horses, and Mint Juleps (yea, even now!). Although he’s a Mason and therefore not supposed to do much talking, lend him an ear and before long he will tell you about everybody who ever did, ever does or ever will play base ball. Is he a base ball fan? — Lis- ten: He’s been seen to have to hold himself in his chair to keep from running up and throwing his arms around Judge Robb when that distin- guished gentleman prefaces his lectures with the “LATEST” from the field of battle during the SEASON. “Grig” is a movie fan also. He is a candidate for an LL.B., and, although he refused to state his future plans (we doubt not that he hadn’t consulted Mrs. Grigsby, for, much as we hate to admit it boys, after we acquire life partners, we just have to take them into consideration once in a while), we’re hoping great things of him in the law line. J. PRENTICE GROSS Dallas, Texas J. Prentice received his early education in Dallas, receiving an LL.B. at the Jefferson School of Law in 1923. He received his LL.B. at National last year and returned this year for the LL.M. and M.P.L. degrees. He is an attorney in the U. S. Veterans Bureau, and is a member of the Texas Bar and of the United States Supreme Court. He is fond of tennis, dancing, and hunting (hunting mostly), and he says he is single as yet. We don’t know where he’s been hunting. J. P. is a member of Washington Lodge No. 1177, A.F. A.M., Na- tional University Masonic Club, Fellowcraft Club, Glee Club, American Legion, and Sigma Delta Kappa Fraternity. During the World War he served in Uncle Sam’s Army. He expects to re- turn to Texas this year to enter active practice. 92 THE POCKET ARCHIBALD LYLE HANNUM Riverton, New Jersey From the wilds of “Joisey” came “Banty,” to audit the books for Uncle Sam by day and to seek a legal education by night, all at one and the same time. He served with the United States Navy for three years (1910 to 1913). He is a graduate of the Washington School of Account- ancy, is a member of P.O.S.A., Jr. Q.U.A.M., Har- mony Lodge No. 17, A.F. and A.M., the Ionic Club (Masonic), and the Civic Order of the Head of the Family. His main hobby is work (spelled with all caps), and if you don’t believe it, just hook up with him in the Moot Court and you will find that he has some air-tight pleadings and plenty of arguments to support them. But he likes golf, fishing, and fast driving (when the traffic cops are not in sight). His plans are all question marks at the present time, but we feel sure that when he has received his LL.B. degree he will know how to make good use of it. LEMUEL MORTON HAMLET Landover, Maryland The soliloquies of this particular Hamlet, as we have heard them in class, have been brief and to the point. And for a prospective lawyer that’s an art, pure and simple. The ability to drive home the winning point is doubtless what won success for him in the real estate business, and emboldened him to “take a chance” in Florida dur- ing the late flurry in stocks in that frenzied market. He holds the degrees, B.A. and M.A., conferred by Mt. St. Joseph College, Baltimore, Md., in 1899, and is candidate for the LL.B. and J.D. degrees at National. He is married, and his hobby is fish- ing. (Once in a while a bachelor lists fishing as his hobby, but generally that sport is preempted by the Silence Lovers’ Club.) Mr. Hamlet expects to get into the practice of law, but he has not confided to us the jurisdiction of his choice. 93 T HE POCKET THOMAS FREDERICK HARRIS Forest City, North Carolina The historian of the State of North Carolina told us confidentially that there was a Harris among the first settlers of that part of the primeval forest now known variously as the Old North State, the Tar Heel State, and the Home of the “Goober Grabbler,” and we’re sure Tom is one of his de- scendants. However that may be, Thomas Fred- erick is all right. He is capitalizing on his genial southern manner as a traveling salesman. We don’t know whether the fact that he is married has anything to do with his occupation or not, but after seeing Mrs. Harris, we’ve decided we don’t blame Tom for wanting to study law so he can give up his traveling, take the North Carolina Bar, and settle down in a dovecote for two. The Knights of Pythias and the Honorable Order of Base Ball Fans count our worthy con- frere among their members. If we could turn back the pages of history we would find him clad in khaki and singing “Lafayette we’re here,’ , for of the two years spent in helping to win the war, one was with the American Expeditionary Forces in France. BENJAMIN M. HEDRICK Glencarlyn, Vriginia “Ben” is already one of the legal lights of a state famed for its brilliant jurists, so being a candidate for the LL.B. and M.P.L. degrees is merely “running true to form” on his part. In earl y life “Ben” decided on a military career, and that’s why we can put him down as being a graduate of the United States Military Academy. He enlisted in the Connecticut National Guard in 1916, and served his country in the World War with the 13th United States Field Artillery, receiv- ing his discharge in December, 1922. Like all true Virginians Ben is fond of hunting. In the legal world we are sure he will aim at big game — big Patent Law cases, perhaps, or big retainers from “Big Business.” At any rate we expect to see his name placed among those of the many eminent jurists from the mother state of the nation. He has already won out in the matrimonial game, so that’s that, girls! 94 THE POCKET BRUCE FINCH HENDERSON Dresden, Tennessee Has any one here seen Tenne? T-E- DOUBLE N -E, Has anybody here seen Tenne? — Tenne — who? Tennessee, brother. We’re trying to locate Dresden the home of the “Wildcat.” During his first year at National he took a very active part in debating, but of late he has quieted down. Per- haps he’s learning his lesson early boys. He doesn’t believe in doing anything excessively, — ever see a Tennessian who did? But at that he can swing a mean fishpole and shoot a wicked bullseye, and as for dancing, — well, we guess it’s a good thing he is getting married. But laying all joking aside, just listen to this and you’ll see why we rate him a “topnotcher” and are proud to have him in our outfit: During the late war he served as a Lieutenant in the Air Service (12th Balloon Company), was in the service eighteen months, twelve of which he spent Over There, and he participated in the St. Mihiel and the Argonne- Meuse drives, out of which he emerged with a citation. You’ve earned your name, “Wildcat,” and after you get your LL.B. degree and the other title (which SHE’LL give you), you’ll win new titles at the Bar. Success and happiness! HUGO HERFURTH, JR. Alexandria, Virginia Down in George Washington Park, Alexandria, Va. live Hugo and Mrs. Hugo, when they are at home. He has made his place in the community as a building contractor, and after getting all there was to be got in that way, acquired the idea that there ought to be a General Counsel for the Asso- ciation of Building Contractors of the United States, and that he ought to be IT, — so he took up law. For all he’s such a hard headed business man he still enjoys the lighter things of life, in the way of dancing, tennis, and other like diversions, His plans for the immediate future (after acquir- ing his LL.B. degree) are indefinite, but as you have just seen, his ultimate goal is a high one, and we’re sure he’ll make it. He has a way of accom- plishing what he sets out to do, so here’s to the future G.C. of the A.B.C. of the U.S.A. 95 THE POCKET ANDREW HERLITS, JR. St. Louis, Missouri This is “Andy,” of the Show-me State. He has been a sort of “stand-by” when any diplomacy was needed in class politics, and when any arrange- ments for our social affairs required a “heavy man” Andy was there to deliver the goods. He was very prominent in the WAR COLLEGE, in fact more so than in the class room, and has been heard to deliver some very powerful dissenting opinions on rulings of the Supreme Court, which, strange to say, in some instances sound reasonable. His war record includes service with both the Army and Marine Corps. He was Vice-President of the Miller Debating Society, Chairman of the Social committee, and Treasurer of Phi Beta Gamma Le- gal Fraternity. Judging from his ability to collect money you would think the correct way to spell his name would be to end it with a “Z.” Andy is a for- tunate young man — his wife is an attorney, and as soon as he is awarded the much sought for LL.B. degree, they expect to practice under the firm name of Herlits and Herlits. Some fellows are just naturally lucky! EVERETT B. HIGKERSON Woodridge, District of Columbia “Hickie” was “Bo’n and raised” down in Fau- quire County, Virginia. Whether he does or doesn’t lay claim to being a member of the F.F.V., he looks the part anyway. Is he married? We never use slang, otherwise we would exclaim “we’ll say he is!” But we do not believe that that ex- plains Hickie’s aversion to being heard, even when plainly seen. Well we remember the first time he was called upon to “state a case” in Damages or whatever it was. He steadied himself against the “pulpit,” his paper shaking like an aspen leaf, while his voice was hardly louder than the zephyr that shakes the leaf. But the statement of the case was all right — at least Professor Bastian, who read it for him, said he would give him ninety-eight on it! Even that encouragement didn’t loosen up the Hickerson vocal cords, for when Justice Sid - dons tried to page him in Negotiable Instruments, “Hickie”, sitting right under the Judge’s watchful eye, looked up with a cherub smile — and kept silent. But that doesn’t mean that he does not hit high marks, for we understand he does. He belongs to the Masons, Columbia No. 3, A.F. and A.M. He is a candidate for the LL.B. degree and expects to practice in Washington. 96 THE POCKET NITA S. HINMAN Evansville, Indiana Out of that section of the country where men are men and women good housewives hails this modern Portia to pursue the study of the law. She set out to make a mark in the law that the women of tomorrow may shoot at. She attended New York University one year, and holds a cer- tificate of graduation in the course of study pur- sued. She is a member of the Portia Club of New York City. “Night,” as she is more familiarly known, joined National in 1923, and since that many things have happened. By December 1925, she was so far advanced in her studies that she passed the District Bar, and subsequently was ad- mitted to the Bar of her native state. While a stenographer in the office of our eminent professor, Bertrand Emerson, “Night” learned a few pointers which she has found very helpful in winning cases. A few days after she was sworn in she successfully defended an erring mortal who had violated the Eighteenth amendment to the Con- stitution — at least that’s what the Lady District Attorney said about him. Besides winning cases in court and driving automobiles, our Portia likes nothing better than a good horse race. HENRY C. HOWARD Laconia, New Hampshire A Sir Gallahad in disguise. He doesn’t make much ado about it, but he’s usually, on the Q.T., doing some little something to help someone, and say, Stranger, if you ever want to know anything about a certain part of these United States of ours, here’s your information bureau. He earned his B.S. degree at the University of Vermont back in 1906, and since that he has walked amongst his fellow men as a mechanical engineer. Strange that a man who acknowledges having “married early and often”, never had a nickname until the class dubbed him “Infancy” after his plea to Professor Patterson to be allowed to go back, for a moment, to that stage of irresponsibility. He belongs to Takoma No. 29, Masonic Lodge, and the thing that he likes NOTHING ELSE BUT is getting thrown out of Moot Court. He has not taken us into his confidence as to what he intends to do with his LL.B. degree, but he does give us the impression that he is not losing any sleep over plans for the future. Perhaps, as old Doc Munyon would say, “There is a reason,” but we suspect that he has taken up the study of law as a luxury rather than a necessity. 97 T HE POCKET HERBERT V. HUDGINS Norfolk, Virginia The curtain goes up, the band strikes up “DIXIE,” and to the stage steps our Hero. He served his Uncle Sammv faithfully for three years as a member of the Norfolk Light Artillery Blues, National Guard, and now he’s out doing the world as a salesman. He is a member of the Elks and the Butler Law Club and enjoys any- thing in outdoor sports that keeps one a moving — tennis, hunting, horseback riding, and the like. He spent his preliminary years of study in George- town University, coming to National for his senior year. As soon as he acquires his LL.B. degree he expects to practice law, probably in his home state. His sweetheart calls him “Bert”, fellows call him “Hutch,” and he’s expecting some day to be called “Judge.” He says he would like to be engaged, and after reading the above you’ll agree that it looks like he might get his wish, eh? GEORGE T. HUNTER Hyattsville, Maryland Way back in the early days of the Big War, a band started playing “Maryland, my Maryland,” then somebody yelled, “Lafayette, we’re coming!” And George went! The next scene shows him all dolled up as one of the snappiest of “Devil Dogs,” with which he served as machine-gunner and sniper until the end of the war. George is an omniverous animal so far as degrees in the law line are con- cerned, for he is a candidate for about everything National offers — LL.B., LL.M., and M.P.L. He is a member of the American Legion, La Societe Des 40 Hommes Et 8 Chevaux, and of the Maryland Law Club. He is so quiet around school that no one would ever suspect that his main hobbies are “fast driving, big parties, and pretty girls.” Three dangerous hobbies, George, better go slow, or you’ll soon be trying to solve the old time puzzle — you know what it is. After finishing his legal educa- tion he is planning on drifting down to Florida and entering the real estate business in connection with his law practice. Which proves that our hero has lost none of his war time courage! 98 THE POCKET MATTHEW ISHKAHULA New York City Jovial, good natured “Matt” decided that he wanted to be a lawyer, hence we have had the pleasure of his association during our years of “grind” at the National Univerity. He is one of the most popular students in the class and we shall miss him when we have dissolved partnership as a class. Football and baseball are “Matt’s” hobbies, and he would rather see a good game than eat. He served in the World War with the 57th C.A.C., and saw plenty of action, having partici- pated in the St. Mihiel and Meuse-Argonne opera- tions. New England claims “Matt” as a native son. He attended Kimball Union Academy at Meriden, New Hampshire, and is candidate for the LL.B. degree at National. Nothing can convince his class that he is not going to make one of the best attorneys wherever he may practice, and we hope that he will always remember us as we will re- member him. WILLIAM ROY IVES Newton, Iowa From “Out where the tall corn grows” and the home of modern political thought, Bill comes smil- ing into Washington and finds himself spending the day in the folding room of the House of Rep- resentatives. Genial, companionable, and always ready with some kind of answer, whether right or wrong, no member of the class has derived more real joy, more friendships, or more freedom from care than Bill. Whenever there is a party, school, class, or unorganized, be sure that he will be there or know the reason why. The most difficult thing to understand is how he is able to present a new dancing partner at each affair — it’s a gift. He must have learned the gentle art of hobnobbing up on Capitol Hill, for he knows more inside “dope” and meets more officials than any one else in the class. During his entire school career, he has been active in the debating societies, is an active mem- ber of Sigma Delta Kappa, participates in all outdoor sports, and expects to practice law in his native State after receiving his degree of Bachelor of Laws. And last, but not least, he is single. Explain it, please ! 99 THE POCKET CHARLES EDGERTON JACKSON Columbia, South Carolina No wonder Charlie has such engaging ways. He spent several years as scoutmaster for the Boy Scouts. The secretarial work for Senator E. D. Smith of South Carolina keeps Charles Edgerton busy during sessions of Congress. An expert swimm er, the water holds special lure for him, as he intends to specialize in the practice of admiralty law as soon as he is qualified. Charlie is part owner of a prosperous advertising business back home, and still finds time to finish his law work without neglecting his wife and baby boy. He has been active in school affairs ; was assistant marshal of the Moot Court; belongs to the Masonic fra- ternity and the Elks, and is a member of the Na- tional University Masonic Club. During the 68th Congress, he was clerk to the Senate Committee on Interstate Commerce, and we have no doubt that the State of South Carolina is soon going to have another statesman to deal with. HENRY W. KALISS Adams, Massachusetts “Hank” joined us in our third year, coming to us from one of the other law schools in the Capital Cit y. We are glad he did, for if he had not de- cided to come to National for his LL.B. degree we would have lost a happy-go-lucky, genial chap. “Hank” comes from the land of Baked Beans and Brown Bread, but he hasn’t decided whether he will return to the Bay State and enter the active practice of law, but we imagine he will. He en- joys playing golf, fast driving, and dancing. Be- sides being an apt student of the law, his other claim to fame is the fact that he is a musician. Girls, this blonde-headed handsome man claims so far to have escaped the arrows from Dan Cu- pid’s bow ; however, this immunity is bound to prove only a temporary condition. Henry is a member of Gamma Eta Gamma Legal Fraternity, of the Knights of Columbus, and of Massachusetts State Club. 100 THE POCKET CHARLES I. KAPLAN Washington, D. C. “Big Brother Charlie,” alias “Charlie Chaplin,” intends to forsake the role of merchant prince, after he has successfully hurdled the “Bar,” and we predict that he will have a successful career in his new line. His happy smile and agreeable manner will win him clients in the community, as they have won him friends among his class- mates. He expects to get right down to business after he has acquired the LL.B. degree and has accomplished the aforesaid hurdling feat, for he is a believer in the advantages of the school of experience, and in the theory that the way to be- gin is to begin. He has another little matter to attend to before he has gone very far — but we will leave it so some fair damsel to speed him up in that direction. He is a member of the Al- pha Beta Phi Legal Fraternity, and has spent some of his surplus energy in argument in the debating societies as well as in the War College. So he has a running start on the jury. H. LOUIS KATZ Dorchester, Massachusetts If we are not mistaken Dorchester is Boston and Boston is Dorchester, and so Louis lives not in a place but “a State o£ Mind.” Perhaps that’s why he has gone so far in so short a time, for Mr. Katz (a as in cake, if you please) is a Thirty-Second Degree Mason, a Certified Public Accountant, Good Golfer, Graceful Dancer, and almost an Attorney at Law. When he has received his LL.B. degree and has been admitted to the Bay State Bar, we fancy he will add the title Benedict to all the rest, and will settle down to make a place for himself in the legal world. If his masterful handling of cases in Moot Court is an earnest of events to come, Louis will make the welkin ring with his forensic oratory, and will win many more cases than he will lose. 101 THE POCKET NELLIE GREGORY KEASEL Shickshinny, Pennsylvania Our contribution of Portias to the legal profes- sion will not be as large as many of us would have wished it to be. But even though the class will not turn out women lawyers according to the generally accepted standards of quantity produc- tion, we take justifiable pride in the realization that our feminine classmates have attained a qualitative status of high degree. Mrs. Keasel’s marked interest in school work, coupled with a background of long study a nd wide experience, has contributed perceptibly toward raising the scholastic average of the class and has been a constant source of inspiration for those who have been fortunate enough to have been associated with her. While working for the coveted LL.B., Mrs. Keasel is serving the Government in the capacity of statistical clerk in the Veterans’ Bureau. What- ever use she may decide to make of her knowledge of law, we know she will work it out to the lasting credit of National University. 11111111114 o v . nr ' iyv FRANK J. KEATING, JR. Peoria, Illinois Whenever there is anything going on, “Keat’’ is there, always with a smile, and never in trouble. He has served the class and the school well in every matter, and is an enthusiastic member of Sigma Nu Phi Fraternity. His service on the Ban- quet Committee is deserving of special mention. He is employed in the Department of Justice, of which he was appointed Junior Attorney, Court of Claims Division, on April 1, 1926. He spends most of his leisure hours not occupied at school or with his many social affairs, in the bosom of his family. As may be judged from this, he is mar- ried. After receiving his degree of Bachelor of Laws he intends to practice before the Court of Claims until experienced and sufficiently trained to start out for himself. When that time come he will doubtless go back to his home state to practice. 102 THE POCKET HENRY M. KILGORE Philadelphia, Mississippi No, not Philadelphia, Pennsylvania — Philadel- phia, Mississippi. If you don’t believe it look for “F5” in the Atlas and you’ll find it. It’s a sure enough town and big enough to support a whiz bang lawyer such as our Hennery is sure to be when he adds LL.B. to M.O.A. (or maybe its M.A. Anyway it means Master of Accounts), and re- turns to the State of Sibilant Sound. William Penn didn’t corner the world’s supply of Brotherly Love, and that’s why Henry’s presence has meant much to our class. During the World War he served in the 347th Infantry and 87th Division Headquarters Detachment for nearly two years, several months with the forces in France. While mastering ac- counts as an auditor in the day time and studying law at night, he has little time for sports. Perhaps that’s why he is still single, for they do say that golf and tennis and dancing are powerful aids to Cupid in the metamorphosis of Bachelor to Bene- dict. MORGAN K. KNOTTS Grafton, West Virginia Knotts (he says he hasn’t adopted a nickname yet) calls Grafton, West Virginia, his legal domicil, but we think that he has decided to leave it for- ever and take up his residence in the District. He has made such a fine record (we get this from somebody else, not from him) in the Patent Office, where he is employed as an associate ex- aminer, that he is on his way to the head of the line. During his stay in the school he has been a very active member of the debating societies, in which he displayed his ability to think clearly and to speak well, and when tricky would be patentees of the future come before him in those queer procedures known only to the Patent Office, they will quiver and quake at his broadsides of trenchant Patent Law logic. He is still single, but he says if the right party comes along, he will take a chance in the great game called “Blind Man’s Bluff.” He is a member of Phi Beta Gamma (Legal) Fraternity, in which he has held the position of clerk for the past two years. He says he has no hobby, but spends most of his spare time reading. What do you mean, “no hobby”? 103 THE POCKET JOHN A. KNOWLES Riverdale, Maryland “Jack” i s one of the best liked fellows in the class, but he is altogether too modest to be a lawyer. During the World War, he served in the U. S. Air Service as an Air Pilot. It is rumored that Kaiser Bill changed his mind about “licking” the world largely because he heard that Uncle Sam was sending “Battery Bill” over there, and we are inclined to believe there is something to that story. But be that as it may, he knows how to land and we know he will make many a good legal landing, to the discomfiture of opposing at- torneys. Our sympathy is theirs. The State of Maryland has a “corking " good attorney coming when Jack arrives. Between school terms our hero joined the Matrimonial Marines and they tell us that the Domestic bark is successfully launched. Good luck in all your ventures! FRED KOGHLI Alliance, Ohio Ohio, “the State of Presidents,” does not produce Presidents only, but brave men as well, if the record of Fred Kochli in the World War is any indication. He entered the Army as 1st Lieutenant of Infantry on July 15, 1917, and served in France as a member of the 37th Division from June 10, 1918, to January 6, 1919. In the Meuse-Argonne Offensive, though severely wounded, he bravely led his platoon through the battle, and in the face of stubborn resistance captured three officers, a considerable number of enlisted men, three field pieces, and fourteen machine guns. For his record in the war, his grateful country awarded him the Distinguished Service Cross, and France the Cross of Knight of the Legion of Honor. He was dis- charged as a Captain in 1920. He is a member of the U. S. Legion of Honor, the American Society of the French Legion of Honor, the Military Order of the World War, the American Legion, the B.P.O. Elks, and the Sigma Nu Phi (Legal) Fra- ternity. He is a candidate for the LL.B. degree. Nothing is surer than that he will carry on splen- didly! 104 THE POCKET PETER ROSTER New Bedford, Massachusetts “Pete” has served in the Army for about fifteen years, eight, as an enlisted man, and the remainder as a commissioned officer and warrant officer. He is now a warrant officer, and holds a commission as captain in the Infantry Reserve Corps. He is a graduate of the Third Officers ' Training Camp and the Small Arms Firing School, Camp Perry, Ohio; he served as instructor at various training camps, and as assistant professor of Military Science and Tactics at Fishburne Military School, Waynesboro, Virginia. His hobbies are tennis, hunting, pistol and rifle firing. He is always full of cheer and is considered to be one of the bright- est fellows in the class. He is a member of the Sigma Nu Phi (Legal) Fraternity; Sigma Mu Sigma Fraternity; Masonic Order; National Uni- versity Masonic Club; Sojourners Club, Washing- ton Chapter, and had the distinction of being Second Vice-Chancellor of the Joseph H. Choate (Alpha) Chapter, Sigma Nu Phi (Legal) Fraternity in 1925-26. Last, but not least, he served as Grand Gazebo of the School War College. The future holds something good in store for Pete, whatever may be his plans. FRANCIS XAVIER LA FRANCE Pawtucket, Rhode Island Francis X. is a newcomer, having started his legal career at Georgetown University, joining us for the wind-up. During his short stay at National he has made many friends, for he is a jolly good fellow. He is a member of Alpha Chapter of Phi Beta Gamma Legal Fraternity, in which he has held many offices. He keeps his finger on the pulse of his State, so to speak, for not only is he at present in the employ of Linked States Senator Metcalf, of Rhode Island, but he belongs to the Georgetown Alumni Association of Rhode Island, and is a member of the Rhode Island State Club of Washington. He enjoys golf, fast driving, and fencing, but his greatest ambition in life is to win (or to be won by) a rich widow! When he has won the coveted LL.B., and the B.C.S. in the School of Business Administration, National University, he expects to return to Rhode Island to engage in the active practice of law. We hope the day is not far off when Dan Cupid will in- troduce him to the girl of his dreams (the rich widow), who will aid and abet him in attaining any professional height to which he may aspire. 105 THE POCKET ROBERT E. LAMBERT Princeton . Missouri “Hob. " as he is called by his friends, hails from the “You ' ve got to show me " state of Missouri. He is at present the secretary to Honorable Jacob L. Milligan, a member of the House of Representa- tives. Being a serious minded married man, “Bob " has taken his law very seriously. His pleasing personality, perfect control of his legal vocabulary, and wonderful ability as a speaker account for his success in the Moot Court of National. He started debating in his second year, as a member of the Miller Debating Society, and engaged in inter- society debates with the A Ivey Debating Society, receiving second honors for his oratorial powers. He was first alternate of National ' s debating team which visited Bridgewater in 1925. Despite all this, Bob ' s motto is “Silence. " We wonder why. Not being satisfied with one degree, he expects to add LL.B. and M.P.L. to his A.B. His pet hobby is “what not, " meaning, we take it. that he has no fixed delusions. He played his part in the World War, he is a good Mason, and anybody who heard him debate or argue a case in Moot Court will agree that he will make a good lawyer. WILLIAM F. LAUKAITIS Baltimore, Maryland William F.. familiarly “Bill, " came to National University flourishing an LL.B. from the University of Maryland (1921.) He is now candidate for the LL.M. and M.P.L. degrees, which means that he is ambitious to acquire all the knowledge he can before he enters the active pratice of law. He is already a member of the Maryland State Bar, so, you see, he is “all set " for a brilliant career. His hobbies are golf and fast driving, and yet he is single. He is a member of the Sigma Nu Phi Legal Fraternity. The regular patrons of the late lamented “Ramble Inn " knew him well, and they can assure those who did not have that pleasure (of knowing him well, we mean) that our con- frere of the smiling visage is slated for a succe - ful career. 106 THE POCKET VAN NESS LAWLESS Stanfordvillk, New York Any class may count itself fortunate that num- bers among its members serious, intelligent, and helpful men like our Class Poet, Van Ness Lawless. Press of school work, “exams,” domestic responsi- bilities (Yes, he is a happy pater familias) — noth- ing has ever been known to call forth a refusal when he has been asked to take a hand in any school activity, from taking subscriptions to The Docket to buying candy from the Cy Pres girls. He is a conferee in the Income Tax Unit of the Treasury Department, but not being content with this, he entered National, where he indulges to his heart’s content in his favorite indoor sport, “grubbing for an LL.R.” He is a member of the New York Law Club at National, the New York State Society, Warren Lodge No. 32 F.A.A.M., of Scholtzville, N. Y. and the Ionic Club (Masonic). For ten years he was trumpeter for the 13th Regi- ment, Coast Artillery, National Guard, New York, and for three ears (1917-1920) he served as Special Agent, Military Intelligence Division, Gen- eral Staff. The family mind has not been marie up yet, but we venture to prophesy that the edict will be “practice law, back home.” ELTON JESSE LAYTON Orson, Pennsylvania They call him “Red,” back home. Not because he “sees red,” but because his hair is red. If all they say about red headed people being at all times full of fight is true, then our Layton, as all of his class know him and call him, is properly nicknamed. Ry “fight” is not necessarily meant physical fight, although there is not the least doubt that “Red” can give a good account of himself on that score; but the verbal, the argumentative, the lawyer’s kind of fight, is what we mean. In that kind of a scrap he shines. Layton came among us at the inception of this class, “battled” as a mem- ber of and with it right through, and now, like the rest of us, is patiently awaiting the parchment which will entitle him to add LL.R. to his name. F ' or a year he has been a member of the Miller Debating Society, in which he has acquitted him- self with credit, fie is a member of the I.O. O.F. and the Lafayette Lodge No. 19 of the Masonic Order, in Washington, D. C. He is also a Cap- tain in the Finance Department, Officers’ Reserve, United States Army, and Committee Clerk of the United States Senate. 107 THE POCKET JAMES EVERETT LEA, JR. Clarksdale, Mississippi “Happy” is an auditor in the Return Audit Division, Bureau of Internal Revenue, an active member of the local York and Scottish Rite bodies, a life member of Almas Temple, A.A.O.N.M.S., belongs to the Mississippi State Society, Ionic Club, and the Vaughn Sunday School Class, and is an ardent volley ball enthusiast. During the World War he served as yeoman on the U.S.S. Mis- souri, being discharged September 5, 1919. He holds a B.S. from Mississippi A. M. College, and holds a diploma from the International Accountants Society. He plans to specialize in the practice of corporation law. Liking everybody, knowing everybody, speaking to everybody, the following lines describe his practice to a “T”: A little more kindness, and a little less creed ; A little more giving and a little less greed; A little more smile, and a little less frown ; A little less kicking a man when he’s down. A little more “we”, and a little less “1” ; A little more laugh and a little less cry; A few more flowers on the pathway of life; And fewer on graves at the end of the strife. CHARLEY D. LEITER Belding, Michigan Charley received his early education in Michi- gan, later becoming principal of the public schools at Entricon, Michigan. He received his LL.B. from National last year, and also has a degree of B.C.S. from the Washington School of Accountancy. He comes back to us this year for his LL.M. and M.P.L. He is employed as an au- ditor in the Income Tax Unit of the United States Revenue Bureau. He says he likes hunting, danc- ing, and slow driving, and that he is single with no immediate intention or expectation of changing his status. In view of this latter statement we are unable to understand the slow driving — may be the traffic cops, who knows. During the War he was an army field clerk with the A.E.F. in France. He is a member of Lafayette Lodge No. 19, F.A.A.M., Ionic Club, National University Masonic Club, and Costello Post of the American Legion. He expects to return to Michigan to engage in the active practice of law. 108 THE POCKET FRANK P. LENAHAN Sugar Notch, Pennsylvania Bachelor Lenahan (he says he is satisfied with the state of single blessedness) is one of those am- bitious and industrious students (so ’t is said) who are up with the sun to dig out the legal worms from cases and text. Of course, he makes a good showing when the time comes to spring the results of his early morning labors on the “prof” and the class, and likewise, of course, his scholastic record is good. He is popular with his classmates, es- pecially those who know him well. Though he has not been active in debating, he has had his say in Moot Court, especially in jury work. No disagreements with Frank on the jury; he has a way of swinging things in his direction. He is out for an A.B. and an LL.B., but he has never told us exactly how he proposes to apply the knowl- edge for which they stand. Now take another look at his picture; you are bound to be in favor of him. GEORGE E. LEVESQUE Salem, Massachusetts George, as he is known by his friends, comes from the state from which so many great states- men emanate. He is secretary to the Honorable A. Piatt Andrews, member of the House of Rep- resentatives, but we hope some day to hear that our genial and happy-go-lucky colleague is him- self representing the same district of Massachu- setts. He is laying a good foundation for this at National, where he is candidate for the degree of LL.B. He has not taken us into his confidence as to his plans for the future, but we prophesy that he will marry and settle down, before very long, to win laurels at the Bar. Because of his ability and readiness to do things for others and his love of company, he will make a host of friends as soon as he starts out to practice. He is a member of the Salem Lodge No. 799 of B. P. O. E., and is a Lieutenant in the U. S. A. Reserve Corps. 109 THE POCKET SAUL G. LICHTENBERG District of Columbia During his stay at National we have found “Likty” a willing worker for the benefit of the class. He is the sort of a law student who works hard at whatever he attempts to do, and so, he has already successfully passed the District of Columbia Bar, pending graduation from National with the much coveted LL.B. degree. He is at present assistant chief clerk of St. Elizabeths Hos- pital, the Government hospital for the Insane. “Likty” is eligible to become a member of the B. and C. Club (Ball and Chai n) as he is still single, in which blessed state he is blindly determined not to stay. His pet hobby is fast driving. We hope it is not automobiles, for we would hate to hear him plead guilty to such a charge before the magistrates of the District. He is connected with Alpha Beta Phi (Legal) Fraternity. He thinks he may study medicine some day, but in the mean- time he will practice law. JOHN WORCESTER LIGHT Lebanon, Pennsylvania While pursuing his course at National as a hard working and very serious minded student, John occupies his days as an auditor, — work, by the way, for which he must be very well equipped, as he received the degree B.C.S. at the Washington School of Accountancy in 1923. He is now a can- didate for the LL.B. degree. With the legal knowl- edge that those letters signify, and having passed the Bar (which one he has not told us) he expects to practice law. Our fellow student is one of the quiet kind, so we cannot tell from his manifesta- tions of forensic oratory whether he will be most successful as a trial lawyer, corporation counsel, patent attorney, or what not; but this much we can judge — he is attentive to the business in hand, and that means success in whatever special line he may follow. During the recent war he served with the 304th Engineers, 77th Division. He is a member of the National University Masonic Club, The Married Men’s Union, and the Amalga- mated Association of Baseball Fans. 110 T HI POCKET MARK THEODORE LITTLE Hanover, Pennsylvania Mark came to National after a year at George- town University Law School. He is a clerk in the Law Department of the Southern Railway Company. A most obliging fellow, Mr. Mark is, yes Sir, and many a case has he looked up for a fellow student not having access to such a store of legal literature as abounds in the Railway Company’s library. He would answer a certain question by saying “single and not about to marry.” But Mark is not sure and, furthermore, he has recently invested in a Jordan Sedan, balloon tires and everything, which you must admit, rather in- dicates that the Fortune Teller was right who saw “a change” for him. He has been exposed to the tennis infection, and is not so bad on the courts. After receiving his LL.B. in June, Mark will go into law, just where is not certain. Ask him some- time to tell you of the old Navy life. He was two years in the transport service during the war and was discharged in 1919 as Chief Yeoman. GARLETON M. LONG Washington, D. C. Carleton (queer how familiar one grows in year- book write-ups!) is domiciled (legally speaking) in Voteless Washington. In fact, if we are cor- rectly informed, he was born and raised among the Cave Dwellers. He has made the best of his residence in this city of schools, having received a certificate of graduation in Commercial Science from the Y.M.C.A. School of Accountancy before entering National, where he is a candidate for the LL.B. degree. As he expects to work for LL.M. and M.P.L. degrees, National will have his pres- ence next year. He saw service in the U. S. Marine Corps from August, 1918, to March, 1919, and now he helps to keep Uncle Sam’s accounts straight as an auditor in the Treasury Department. During his stay at National, he has made his mark in debating, winning honors in one of the inter- class debates. He is Editor of the Jokeshop of The Docket. When he has annexed all the degrees National has to offer he expects to practice law. Ill T HE POCKET CHARLES EDWARD LOWERY Manahawkin, New Jersey Charles received his early education on the high seas and in his native town. He later entered a business school at Trenton and graduated from the Walton School of Accountancy. During the World War he served with the American Expedi- tionary Forces, and after the Armistice entered the University of Paris, where he remained for some time. Upon return to this country he ac- cepted a position in the Bureau of Internal Rev- enue. He received his LL.B. from National last year and is now a candidate for the LL.M. The good wishes of the class go with him. FRANK E. LOWMAN Miami, Florida The land of sunshine and Howers, everglades and lemonades, palm beaches and coral gables, is homeland for Frank. And Frank is one of the “homing” birds. With his LL.B. and “and Mrs.” following his name, he expects to go right back home to Miami, establish a law office and a home, and proceed to do his bit in putting to rout the “land sharks” and “mud turtles” that infest his native swamps. In the meantime he helps to keep the lights and things going at the Navy Yard, while mastering the intricacies of law. Since joining us at National, he has made his mark in forensic oratory in the Alvey and Miller debating societies. He has also demonstrated great ability as a sales- man, being a member of “The Docket” subscription committee. He is a member of Harmony Lodge No. 17, Excelsior Lodge No. 14, Knights of Phy- thias, and Sigma Theta Phi Fraternity. For some years prior to the Great War he was a member of the Illinois National Guard, and during that conflict he served in the Navy. He is a good citi- zen and he will be a good lawyer. Success! 112 THE POCKET RALPH J. LUTTRELL Winchester, Virginia The State of Beautiful Mansions is home to “Joe.” No wonder he is a lover of nature and the great outdoors — who wouldn’t be, after a child- hood spent in roving the hills and dales of that wonderful apple-orchard country. Tennis, big- game hunting (he doesn’t explain the particular kind of big game he hunts), and a little dancing serve to keep this stalwart Son of the Cavaliers in touch with the boys as well as the girls. The wonder of it all is that he continues to fill in the dotted line with the word “Single.” But so it is. This young man has already met with success in the profession which he has chosen. Before receiv- ing his degree at National he passed the Virginia Bar examination. At present he is a law clerk, but when he has received his LL.B. degree he expects to embark upon active practice of law in his home town. “Joe” is a member of Sigma Delta Kappa Intercollegiate Legal Fraternity, and those who heard him in the school debates feel sure that he will argue well and to a successful conclusion the cases (and may they come thick and fast) which he will have the good fortune to present to the court. FREDERICK W. LYLE Waltham, Massachusetts Like the watches of his home town, Frederick W. is a silent “stem winder.” If we hadn’t got it out of him “by main strength and awkward- ness” we would never have known that before he joined us at National he had won the degree of Bachelor of Science from the Massachusetts In- stitute of Technology. Doubtless that explains his aptitude as Patent Examiner in the United States Patent Office. There must be some peculiar fas- cination about the Patent Office, for most of our classmates engaged in that work seem to want to “stick around.” We daresay Lyle will do likewise, after he receives his LL.B. degree, though he has not told us so. He has been with us since we were freshies. He is a Mason, and a bachelor, with a penchant for tennis. 113 j THE POCKET JOHN F. MANEY Seneca, Wisconsin Living up to the reputation generally accredited to residents of his native State, John, who hails from Wisconsin, is in his happiest mood as a dirt farmer. Outside of his regular hours of duty as an auditor and accountant in the Federal Estate Tax Division of the Treasury Department, our curly headed and genial friend can usually be found digging in the dirt — either in his garden with a spade or hoe, or somewhere near the fair- way on a golf course with a mashie or niblick. During the World War John did his bit as a member of the Medical Department of the Army, and then settled down and took unto himself a wife. He has no particular plans for the future, but unless indications fail, bids fair to furnish from Wisconsin a new member of the Senate who is not a LaFollette. He belongs to the Knights of Columbus. SIMEON PASTOR MANGALIMAN Bantay, Ilocos Sur, Philippine Islands Mangaliman commenced his legal education be- fore coming to the United States. He received the LL.B. degree from the National University at Manila in 1924, and came over here to win the LL.M. degree, for which he is a candidate at National. When this is accomplished, he expects to return home, where he will devote his knowledge and experience to the cause of bringing the Philip- pine Islands into the family of nations. While making plans to accomplish this, he is serving Uncle Sam as an income tax auditor in the Treas- ury Department. He is single, is a member of the Filipino Club of Washington, and numbers among his hobbies tennis, hunting, and dancing. His motto is “Put your head, heart and hand to what- ever you do,” and with these words ever before him, we predict a brilliant future for him in his faraway island home. 114 THE POCKET EMILIO F. MARGHIONY Hoboken, N. J. Straight from the Students’ Army Training Camp at Fordham University, “Marchy” came marching into Washington and National Univer- sity, where he is pursuing the double course of study required for the degrees of Bachelor of Laws and Bachelor of Arts. “Marchy” is one of those quiet individuals who doesn’t say much, and is so bashful that he admits to no fraternities, no hobbies, and no future plans. Who ever heard of a man from New Jersey that did not have any plans? Do not be surprised to hear of him going over across on Manhattan Island to the suburb of Hoboken and showing several former governors and secretaries of state how to practice law. And while we are about it we may as well admit, even if he does not, that the prospects of matrimony in the near future are particularly bright. Who can tell what the story will be twenty years from now? ESTHER L. MARTIN Washington, D. C. Esther received her early education in a convent, after which she tried accountancy at a business school for a while, but tiring of additions and multiplications, and seeking new fields to conquer, she arrived in our midst, bent on becoming a lawyeress. She has endeared herself to us all by her pep, friendliness, and willingness to help when- ever needed. She served as Secretary of the Miller Debating Society for three terms, as Secretary of the Class in its Junior Year, and as Registrar of Kappa Beta Pi Legal Sorority during this last year. She says that her hobbies are confined to selling year books and playing golf, but we’re not so sure. How about automobiles and diamond rings and “single” members of National “U.” Her plans for the future include completion of her A.B. work at George Washington and then a Bachelor Girl’s life practicing law. But can you imagine wasting that “most beautiful pair of eyes” on dingy old law books? A much better future, we think, would be for “Esther, dear” to make one of the now suffering hangers-on happy and then use the eyes on him across the breakfast table. 115 1 THE POCKET REED F. MARTIN Terra Alta, West Virginia This member of that cosmopolitan bunch which goes toward making up the temporary population of the City of Washington hails from the rattle- snake section of West Virginia. He is employed in the office of the Comptroller General of the United States. “Doc” says he belongs to the War College. No matter whether he is an “expert medical witness’’ in Moot Court, or stating cases in International Law, he is a shining light. He earned his B.C.S. at Ohio Northern University and has plugged out his LL.B. (or nearly so) at our National University. We feel sure that he will be a success and that an appreciative public awaits him, for any man who has won fame in our War College will find the vicissitudes of life more of a pleasure than an ordeal. CLYDE S. MASON Grand Rapids, Michigan Clyde hails from the good old town made fa- mous by its furniture for newly weds, but he deserted it, at least temporarily, to seek his fame and fortune in the City of Law Makers. He holds the degree, Bachelor of Science, from the Uni- versity of Michigan, and is making practical ap- plication as mechanical engineer in the Interstate Commerce Commission of the knowledge and skill thus acquired. He has been a faithful student in the class from the beginning, taking part in school activities in a cooperative rather than active way. He is not a “joiner,” but that does not mean that he has not entered into a life partnership, for he is on the “married” list. The sterling qualities which he has evinced as a student lead us to expect great things of him when he has earned the LL.B. degree and returns to Grand Rapids to practice law, where we predict that he will be- come one of the outstanding legal lights of the community. 116 the: docket LOUIS J. MEYERLE Fargo, North Dakota “Judge” makes a business of being a student. He takes his work seriously, and of course has made good and will continue to do so. He does not take much to outdoor sports, but he is active in organization work. He is a member of Na- tional University Masonic Club, the Shiloh Lodge and the El Zagal Temple, of Fargo, and of the Sigma Nu Phi Legal Fraternity. He hasn’t joined the Sacred Order of Head of the Family, but even the most artful evaders fall into the snare sooner or later. The “Judge” served his country with honor during the World War as a member of the Motor Transport Corps. He has not made up his mind whether he will add a few more degrees to the LL.B., for which he is a candidate at Na- tional, or whether he will plunge into the intrica- cies of procedure as followed in his home state. Whichever way the decision goes, we wish him well. HARRY H. MILLARD Takoma Park, Maryland We need not tell the members of the class of ’26 that Millard is a good student and a helpful fellow-student — everybody knows that. He has been active in promoting the welfare of the class and the school in many ways. As Keeper of The Docket Subscription Roll he has shown us how wise was Uncle Sam in putting him on the list as Audit Clerk, Accounting Department, Panama Canal (Washington Office). For nothing escapes Harry in the figure line. He enlisted as Buck Private, U. S. Army, in 1917, served eighteen months with the American Expeditionary Forces, France, and was honorably discharged in 1919, with the rank of Sergeant, First Class, M.D., U. S. A. He is a member of the Veterans of Foreign Wars; Modern Woodmen of America; Maryland Club, National University; National University Rifle Club; Sigma Delta Fraternity; and Royal Neighbors of America. He is married, and his hobbies are hunting and radio. He will succeed, no matter what he tackles, nor when, nor where. 117 THE POCKET ARCH D. MONTEATH Asheville, North Carolina “Monte” (pronounced Monty) hails from the skyland part of the Old North State, and is en- gaged in the practice of law in Washington. He is listed among the ranks of the Benedicts (tough luck, girls!) He is a graduate of the Law School of the University of North Carolina, and is now after his Masters’ degree in Patent Law at Na- tional. He is a member of the Bar of the District of Columbia and of North Carolina and it is his intention to continue his legal work in the District. He is an active member of the local lodge of I.O.O.F. and was a delegate to the Grand Lodge of that order several years ago. He enlisted in the National Guard of North Carolina at an early age, as trumpeter, and was rapidly promoted to First Sergeant. He participated in the State prize drills, coming out with second prize. He saw service during the World War although he did not get to France. His hobbies are hiking and wrestling and he is also a lover of good music and drawing, being quite proficient in both. GEORGE T. MONTGOMERY Wakefield, New York The records show that Monty was born, not so many years ago, in the Empire State. After being exposed in the usual order to measles, mumps, and an education (all of which took, by the way), Monty decided that the laws of the land were his metier, and he has since shown us that he was right. Now fortified with the LL.B. degree, and a build like the Washington monument, he is helping the Comptroller General of these United States to tighten up on the leakage of public funds from the public sock. More power to him ! Monty is married but otherwise sound, has a good dis- position, a keen sense of humor, and a wealth of funny stories that bear telling to picked audiences. But he has also a pipe that makes one keep one ' s distance. We questioned Monty as to his hobby and he stated it was hunting — but he was very non-committal when pressed for details. “Munc pro tunc.” 118 the; pocket HELEN LOUISE MOORE Marion, Indiana “Dinty,” as you see, comes from “Indiana, In- diana, the greatest state the country ever knew’’ (sung to the tune of “Mr. Dooley”). The old football song strikes a responsive chord in Dinty’ s heart, because she is a true-blue Hoosier, not be- cause she is a football fan. Nor is she inclined to golf, or tennis, or any of the lady-like sports, but Oh, Boy! — what a baseball fan is Helen from Marion! She is one of those “dressy,” “feminine” girls, and we can’t fathom her fondness for legal lore any more than we can her love for the Great American Game, but we know there is a reason. She will not tell us what she intends to do with her LL.B. degree when she gets it, but she is a resourceful young lady, so we leave that to her. In the meantime she is busy (when the game’s not on) taking care of her secretarial du- ties in the office of the Comptroller, Alien Property Custodian. She is a member of Marion Rebekah Lodge No. 347, I.O.O.F., and she can hold up her part of the argument about the League of Nations, the Volstead Act, or anything else that is under discussion. JACK R. MOORE Washington, D. C. Jack is a Washington boy, one of the great throng that has to sit back and trust to luck in the way of voting, et cetera. Maybe Jack and some of his fellow sufferers will get together and help change this deplorable condition some fine day. No, he is not free, but that doesn’t worry Jack, for he has his nights out with the Phi Beta Gamma bunch, and that helps a lot. During the World War he served with the Army from December 2, 1917 to August 13, 1919. He is now a student at the Vocational Training School, that wonderful institution which is conducted by our Government and doing so much for the Veterans. Jack’s plans for the future are indefinite but we feel confident that he will make his mark somewhere, someday, in the practice of the profession to which he has devoted three years of faithful, intelligent study. 119 THE POCKET NORMAN T. MORSELL Baltimore, Maryland Sometime in the near future when visiting the Monumental City you may see a large, hand- some banner floating over the crowds on Baltimore Street bearing the words, “VOTE FOR NORMAN T. MORSELL, THE MAN WHO PUT ‘MORE’ IN BALTIMORE ’ and then you’ll remember a clean-cut chap who used to go to National Uni- versity, quiet and unassuming but always “there” when called on for an opinion and always looking happy when the marks came out. “Morse " is a member of Harmony Lodge No. 17, F.A.A.M., the Ionic Club, Woodmen of the World, and the Ken- neth H. Nash Post of the American Legion. He was in Uncle Sam’s Navy during the World War. He is candidate for the LL.B. degree, and when that’s over he plans entering politics. When not engaged in the study of the law and his various other interests, he enjoys chasing (or is it cussing) the elusive white pill over hill and valley, and they say he swings a mean driver. EARL RAYMOND MOSBURG Frederick, Maryland By way of occupation, “Mossy” spends his time in the office of the Secretary of State. With this occupation as the ground upon which to erect a structure of legal knowledge, he came to us some three years ago, participated creditably in the de- bating activities of our institution, and in other respects worked hard for and with his class, and now is looking forward with no small amount of pleasure to the evidence that his labors were not futile — his diploma with the degree, LL.B. He is a member of the Sigma Delta Kappa Fraternity, the New Jerusalem Lodge No. 9 of Masons in this city, and the National University Masonic Club. His hobby is golf, which seems to be true of a good many of our married men. He held up his side of the arguments in the debating matches, but his class will recall “Mossy” particu- larly by the masterly eloquence with which he pleaded for the life of his “client” who was being tried for “murder” in Moot Court. Whatever you do “Mossy,” rest assured your class wishes you success. 120 THE POCKET DONALD ROOSEVELT MOTE Indianapolis, Indiana The Hoosier State can be depended upon to furnish all the politics necessary to any organiza- tion. Moot has been so busy all his life acquiring an education and its sidelights, that the only thing that will save his life in the future is a political career. Outside of his football, bowling, year-book work, booster activities, basketball and intramural athletics, he still had time to devote to Delta Tau Delta, Delta Nu Epsilon, the Masonic fraternity, the Knights of Pythias and the Reserve Officers’ Training Camp at De Pauw University. During his spare moments he acquired an A.B. at Wabash College and has been enrolled at Indiana State Normal and George Washington University. Not satisfied with all these activities, Moot is about to embark on the sea of matrimony, and as soon as he completes his course at National intends to re- turn to Indianapolis and resume the practice of the law. L. DONALD MYERS Jamestown, New York “Don” when “back home” is near neighbor (if we remember our Geography correctly) to that heaven of the “intellectual proletariat,” Chautauqua. But it seems that he didn’t tarry long in the Em- pire State, as the record shows that he was “raised” in the District of Columbia. From what we have seen of him he has adopted the quiet and silent ways of the District; but perhaps the other reason for his silence is the fact that his life partner has taught him that silence is golden. He is at present following the calling of the law, being a patent attorney with an office in the Victor Building, and therefore a few steps ahead of the rest of the class. If one could get Don started he might tell some wonderful stories of his experience in the Navy, as he spent three months overseas. He is a mem- ber of the Washington Canoe Club, Federal Lodge No. 1 of the Masonic Order, and of the National University Masonic Club. He is a candidate for the LL.B. and M.P.L. degrees. 121 THE POCKET JOHN CARTER MacNAB Washington, D. C. John Carter NacNab, B.S. in M.E., LL.B., M.P.L., D.C.L. ! Think of it! And he’s our classmate. The third degree is in the offing, and the other two will come along next year. For John comes by his studious proclivities quite naturally and honorably. He is the third of his family to gradu- ate from the National University Law School, his father, back in the eighties, and his uncle a few years later. Thus imposingly equipped with diplo- mas and degrees, Mac expects to practice Patent Law. He is occupied at present as cartographic engineer with the U. S. Coast and Geodetic Survey. We had no sooner launched ourselves as a class before we realized that this ambitious and studious young man would prove to be one of the outstand- ing figures. And such has been the case. Other- wise we might not have made him the custodian of our great wealth, which, as class Treasurer he guards so zealously. He is a member of the Phi Sigma Kappa (Legal) Fraternity, and numbers among his hobbies golf, dancing, and fast driving. FRANCIS H. McADAMS Brooklyn, New York It does not appear from the record whether our fellow student springs from the Highlands or the Lowlands, but we do know that he is always (at least in school) as placid as a Caledonian lake or Long Island Sound on a summer day. Nothing, from Domestic Relations to Federal Procedure, has seemed to disconcert him. He makes no bluster about it, but we have observed that he can dig out the fine points of any old case or stand up in any kind of classroom third degree as well as the next one. When he is not enagaged at his work as Assistant Director of Accounts of the Interstate Commerce Commission, or delving into the depths of legal lore, he eschews the links and the court and the stadium, but devotes himself to the family circle. At least that’s what they tell us who say they know. He is one of those earnest individuals who, early in life, set a high goal for himself, making the necessary sacrifices to the God of Achievement. We predict great things for Mc- Adams in whatever part of the professsion he may choose to follow. 122 THE POCKET LOY McAFEE New York City Dr. McAfee is a native of Georgia, although her legal domicil is the Queen City of the Empire State. She received the A.B. and A.M. degrees from “fe- male seminaries” in her own southland, and the M.D. degree, in 1904, from the Medical College of Indiana. Dr. McAfee studied medicine, not to practice, but to engage in the literary side of this important science. During the War she served as Contract Surgeon, U. S. Army, taking active part in “The Battle of Washington.” She is a member of the Medical Veterans of the World War, the League of American Pen Women, and the Cy Pres Club of National University. Her work as As- sistant Editor-in-Chief of the Medical and Surgical History of the World War, which is being edited under the direction of the Surgeon General of the Army, is holding her in Washington. After she receives the LL.B. and M.P.L. degrees from Na- tional it is her intention to specialize in that branch of Criminal Law which involves Medical Juris- prudence and to practice in New York City. john c. McCarthy Ballston, Virginia “Mac” stole a march on his classmates by slip- ping down to wherever they hold Bar examinations in Virginia, taking said examination in June, 1925, and being admitted to the Bar of that common- wealth in due time. But that was all right, we don’t hold it against him. He entered the class of 1926 at its inception, and has been with it ever since, as candidate for the LL.B. degree. He will go right on practicing law at the Arlington Court- house in Virginia, just as if nothing had happened, for already it comes natural to him to be called “Attorney at Law.” We can understand how he put that over on us, but what puzzles us is how he manages to remain single. How can any man remain single who wears a perpetual smile, meas- ures six-feet-plus, has a Doug Fairbanks (in the movies) figure, and putts and drives on the golf course ? 123 THE POCKET MICHAEL JAMES McDERMOTT Peabody, Massachusetts “Who is that stocky built, jovial, grey-eyed chap with the broad sunny smile ?” Why that’s “Mique.” “Mique who?” “McDermott ! !” He says his hobby is trying to break 100 and watching others do it but those who know him say that he pulls down his share of the high marks, in school as well as on the links. “Mique” is out for the LL.B. and the LL.M. degrees and we know he’ll arrive on both feet. He has had his fling at forensic oratory in the Alvey and Miller Debating Societies. He couldn’t have the name he bears and not take a hand in a skirmish, and so, in the late war period, among other services, he was with the Supreme War Council, Versailles, and the American Peace Commission, Paris. He is now Drafting Officer, Department of State. His motto, “Eat, live, let live, and assist my fellows,” goes very well with the large and successful practice that our worthy confrere is sure to have when his shingle announces to the waiting throng of perse- cuted or prosecuted that “Mac” is on the job. JOHN V. McHUGH Hazelton, Pennsylvania John seems to have decided that the coal mining state was no place for a serious minded young man intent upon becoming a legal light, so he came to Washington, joined the ranks of the Gov- ernment employees, and took up the study of law with the class of 1926, bent on affixing to his name a few of the lettered combinations that signify “learned in the law.” He has made a good job of it so far. He expects to receive the first and second instalments of degrees — LL.B. and M.P.L. — in June. He intends to follow through, and if you stick around yourself you will doubtless see him step up and take the third instalment, for he has avowed his intention of walking off with the LL.M. He is a member of Phi Beta Gamma Legal Fraternity, of which organization he is historian, and he is a Fourth Degree member of the Knights of Columbus. He is noncommittal concerning what use he intends making of all his degrees, and the knowledge for which they stand, but, judging from his handling of Moot Court cases, we feel confident he will join the ranks of jtrial lawyers. 124 THE POCKET CONNIE L. McLEAN Lometa, Texas Connie McLean has been like a father to some of the younger members of the class and has al- ways stood ready to help anyone in time of need. When we did not know what to do in Moot Court or had any weighty question of law to decide, we just naturally gravitated to “Mac” who was al- ways ready and able to help, just as he was when the call to arms came back in 1917. Although above the draft age, at that time he enlisted and served about eighteen months in France, partici- pating in The Aisne, Chateau-Thierry, Champagne- Marne, Aisne-Marne, San Mihiel and Meuse-Ar- gonne operations. He is too modest to say much about his part in the big fracas, except that, be- cause he practically lost the use of his eyes, he is thankful to his Government for furnishing him with a reader in addition to his vocational training, so as to make it possible for him to complete his course in law. He is a member of the Masons and of the Blind Veterans of the World War. He served the latter as National Adjutant for two years. It is his intention, if future opportunity permits, to actively engage in the cause furthering world-wide peace. Gyrmnni HUBERT GILBERT McLEAN Bay City, Michigan “Mac” is employed in the Government service as Washington. He did his “bit” in the World War, serving as Executive Officer, Assistant to Chief of Construction Division of the Army; Fi- nance Officer, Zone Finance Office; Camp Adjutant, Camp Holabird, Maryland; and Chief of Statis- tical and Requirement Division, Office of Chief of Motor Transport Corps, attaining the rank of Cap- tain, U.S. (N.A.) Q.M.C. He is a 32nd degree Mason, Knights Templar; member of the A.A.O. N.M.S. (Almas Temple); The Ashlar Club; The Ionic Club (Master Masons) ; The American Le- gion; The Military Order of the World War; and the Manor Country Club. The only sport that Mac gets a “kick” out of is a good game of golf, and it is said he taught some of the champs all they know about the game. One degree, LL.B., is enough for “Mac,” and when he gets that he is “raring to go.” He intends to practice law in Washington. 125 THE POCKET JOHN G. McLEOD Baxley, Georgia “Little Bob,” as they call him down South, comes from the land of watermillions, peaches, pe- cans, and pretty girls. He didn’t bring one of the last-named product with him when he came “nawth” to study law, but he’ll make that all right after he has picked up a few legal degrees at National. He’s after the LL.M., as well as the LL.B., and we know he’ll have both these “dips” tacked up on his wall in due time, because “Little Bob” always gets what he goes after. And when he gets up in the Soopreme Court of the District of Columbia, holding a Whateverkinduva Court, and says, “May it please the Court” or “Youah Honah, please,” the judge is going to begin to sit up and take notice, because he’ll know that things are about to happen. “Mac” did a three-year turn with the Coast Artillery, Regular Army, and during the World War he served as Master Sergeant, Motor Transport Corps. He was advertising manager of the National University Law Review, and is a member of Phi Beta Gamma Legal Fraternity, and F.A.A.M. EDWARD A. McMAHON Lynchburg, Virginia If any member of the class has worked hard — perhaps harder than the others members of the class — “Mac” is that man. If one should attach to him the appellation, “Hard-working-Mac,” it certainly would hit the bull’s eye squarely in the middle. Speaking of bull’s eyes, that is another thing that “Mac“ hardly ever misses. He loves shooting and has an excellent record in marks- manship, having won more than fifty medals in various shooting competitions in which he has par- ticipated, some of them national in character. He has served a couple of “hitches” in the Regular Army, and, being a thorough-going believer in preparedness, has continued in the service of his country by joining the National Guard of his district. “Mac” keeps the home fires burning (yes, he’s married) by following the occupation of auditor. He is a candidate for the LL.B. degree, and after getting it expects to continue the study of law, presumably in the stern school of actual experience. His class wishes him success. 126 THE POCKET EDWARD J. McQUADE Washington, D. C. Our class boasts of a banker and a director of a big corporation, both in the person of the first President of the class, Mr. McQuade. He is Vice- President of the Liberty National Bank, and a di- rector of the Mergenthaler Linotype Company of New York. Already well settled in business and social life, he joined our class because he believes that business and law go hand in hand, not be- cause he expects to enter the active practice of law. He is a member of the Sigma Nu Phi Legal Fraternity, Elks, Knights of Columbus, Columbia Historical Society, Racquet Club, Washington Board of Trade, President of the Alumni Associa- tion, Washington Chapter, American Institute of Banking. He is a graduate of the American In- stitute of Banking, and of the Alexander Hamilton Institute and now is a candidate for the LL.B. degree. From his success as a business man and as a student, we are sure that if he should decide to practice law he will have a brilliant career. •Liri Fbvii 1 1 1 in : r CARL DENMAN NELDON Nellie, Ohio Carl entered the National about three years ago, as a candidate for the LL.B. degree. This, how- ever, will not be the first degree ever awarded him, as he now holds the B.C.S. degree from the Washington School of Accountancy, Class of 1921. As might be deduced from what is above stated in connection with his training, Carl is en- gaged in the auditing game. He is single, is a confirmed radio fan — radio fans stay at home, girls — and also indulges in hunting and swimming. He served in the 20th Battalion, Infantry I.R. and T.C., during the war, and is now a 2nd Lieutenant of Finance, Officers’ Reserve Corps. Further, he is a member of Alpha Sigma Alpha Legal Fraternity. Carl expects to enter the practice of Admiralty Law, and declares his intention of having his office on a houseboat. He doesn’t disclose the particular waters on which he expects to float, but whatever they are, we hope the sharks won’t get him. 127 THE POCKET STEPHEN O’DEA East Riverdale, Maryland Besides being a proud father and an earnest student, “Steve” belongs to that famous aggrega- tion of immortals which inspired the composition of “The Parade of the Wooden Soldiers.” As Colonel of the 3rd D.C. National Guard, 1915-1917, he acquired the privilege of tacking “Col.” to his name, but discontinued the practice when some wiseacre, on seeing Steve’s calling card, asked how a colored man came by the name of “O’Dea.” Steve has been one of the most loyal supporters of the debating societies throughout his course at National, and the zealous ardor which he has con- sistently displayed in increasing the value of these organizations to the students of the school has won for him an enviable position in their estimation. He is a member of the Subscription Committee of The Docket, and belongs to the Maryland Club of National. His hobbies are swimming, football, basketball, and attending classes. We don’t know about his skill in the first three, but all of us can testify that as to the latter O’Dea is always H-E-R-E ! He expects to practice law in Maryland and the District of Columbia. DAVID WILLIAM PALMER Vernon, Florida Th is exceedingly popular young man with the pleasing drawl of a true Southerner, hails from the land of palm trees, cocoanuts and sunny beaches — Florida. No wonder he expects to return to his balmy home State to practice when once he has a National University diploma tucked under his arm, bearing the cherished words symbolized by LL.B. There, among other things, he will indulge in his hobby, playing golf with cocoanuts, while hunting, betimes, for the retainer fee. Palmer received his degree of Bachelor of Accounts from Draughon’s College, Nashville, Tennessee, and it came in very handy to help him earn his three square a day as pay clerk in the State Department while striving for his LL.B. During our first year he was Sergeant-at-Arms for the Alvey Debating Society, and during the senior year he showed his mettle in the Moot Court. A rosy future? — Sure! Why not? When two can live as cheaply as one. 128 the; pocket EVERETT L. PHILLIPS Mullens, West Virginia Everett (his friends call him “Dinty Moore”) comes from the state where pumpkins have to be chained to the hillsides to keep them from braining the people in the valley below. Before honoring us with his smiling countenance, he spent two years at Washington and Lee Law School. He is a Mining Engineer connected with the Bureau of Mines, Commerce Department. He expects to en- train for Mullens, West Virginia, shortly after re- ceiving the degrees for which he is a candidate — A.B., LL.B., and J.D. — where he will engage in ac- tive practice. He is a Mason, and member of the Masonic Club of National. His hobbies are base- ball and prize-fighting, but whether he participates actively or as a “fan” we are not informed. Per- haps the latter diversion is in some way responsible for his nickname. During the war he was a civil- ian assistant to General Frank T. Hines, then Director of Transportation Service, General Staff, War Department. STANLEY B. PIERSON District of Columbia Stanley is a son of the Nation’s Capital, where he -expects to remain and engage in the practice of law and Federal Tax Procedure. He is at present an accountant, having received his B.C.S. degree at the Washington School of Accountancy. Like all wise men, he is married, therefore, safe from the wiles and whims of the present day “fiapper,” (we don’t mean you, Portias). He is a member of the Phi Beta Gamma (Legal) Fra- ternity, and though he doesn’t admit it, likewise of the War College, even if he is a silent warrior. For outdoor exercise Stanley is content with an occasional game of golf, and when business per- mits he goes hunting — never mind what! He is a candidate for the LL.B. and LL.M. degrees. Federal Tax Procedure sounds ominous to some of us, but we’re sure anybody who tackles it must know what he is about. And that’s Pierson ! 129 THE POCKET JOHN H. PIGG London, Kentucky John received his LL.B. degree from National in June, 1925, and is back this year for the degrees LL.M. and M.P.L. He is a member of the Ken- tucky State Bar, and expects eventually to return to the Blue Grass State and engage in the practice of law. He has cooperated in school and fraternal activities from the beginning. He is a member of the Rufus Choate Chapter of Sigma Nu Phi (Le- gal) Fraternity, by which he was awarded the Scholarship Key for 1923-1924. He is a Mason, Knight Templar and Shriner; he is a member of the National University Masonic Club, and is President of the Ionic Club of Master Masons. He was Associate Editor of The Docket for 1925. His military record extends from 1917 to 1922, during which time he was a member of the U. S. Marine Corps. He is at present employed as a special auditor in the Income Tax Unit, Bureau of Internal Revenue. We could write a lot more about this tall, good-looking young man, but there are some good-looking girls on the Personnel Com- mittee of The Docket, and we’re afraid his wife might blame it on one of them. ELMER W. PRATT Salt Lake City, Utah From the State where a man’s word is said to be as good as his bond comes this quiet but forceful aspirant for political honors. As secretary to a member of the United States Senate, he has had ample opportunity from experience and observa- tion, to learn enough of the intricacies of the politi- cal game to carry him far along the road to such honors when he sets out for himself. He shows wisdom in making further substantial preparation for his proposed political activities by studying law in National University. He is candidate for the LL.B. degree, and expects to follow that with the LL.M. Then he will be on his way. In the midst of his duties on The Hill and his studies in school, he manages to get in some golf, driving, and writing. He is one of the founders and president of the Rocky Mountain Law Club of National. 130 THE POCKET CHARLES H. QUIMBY, JR. District of Columbia It seems to run in the family, this thing of study- ing law, for if you will look in last year’s Docket you will find an account of the goings and comings of one Charles H. Quimby III. So the son, you see, beat the father to it by one year. However, degree getting is nothing new with our Quimby, for he earned the degree B.S.C.E. from the Uni- versity of West Virginia way back in 1899. He is now candidate for the LL.B. degree from Na- tional. He is Valuation Examiner, Interstate Com- merce Commission, and is a member of the Ameri- can Society of Civil Engineers. He is a member also of the Phi Kappa Sigma (Legal) Fraternity, and of the Five Points Masonic Club of this city. He must have had some bitter experience with traffic regulations somewhere along the line, for when he talks of his fancy for fast driving he always adds “within the law.” Being satisfied with his present occupation, he has made no plans for any immediate change. Good luck to you, “Old Boy!” ROY S. RAMSAY Hastings, Nebraska Roy doesn’t say that he is trying to beat the record of Pop Weston, but he does claim long dis- tance walking as one of his hobbies. Neither did he tell us whether he hiked over this way from the Cornhusker State, more poetically known as the Tree Planter State. But just ask him or any other native of his town if it is located in the Bad Lands, that you heard about when you studied geography, and see what will happen. Pending his return tramp, Roy divides his time — evenly or unevenly we will leave it to him to say — between doing duty as Committee Clerk, House of Representatives, and working for the LL.B. degree at National. He is a member of the Independent Order of Odd Fel- lows and of the Modern Woodmen of America. Oh, yes, we were about to forget to say that he is an amateur philatelist. All contributions gratefully received ! 131 THE POCKET JOHN B. REYNOLDS Minneapolis, Minnesota Reynolds, known to his friends as “Jack” is at present Assistant Chief Clerk of Uncle Sam’s De- partment of Justice. A fair start for one who expects to engage in the active practice of law upon graduation. He has not, as yet, joined the Ball and Chain Club, although he is a member of various others, among them: Sigma Nu Phi Legal Fraternity, Gate and Key Club (Honorary) of George Washington University, George Washing- ton Club of the same institution, Sigma Chi Fraternity, and F.A.A.M., R.A.M., Columbia C om- mandery. Before taking up the study of law at National, Jack thought it his duty to help straighten out the affairs of the world and therefore saw service in the Army of Uncle Sam during the World War. He does not disclose his plans for the future, but we imagine he will practice in one or both of the Twin Cities. BERTHA E. RICHARDSON District of Columbia While half the world was quaking and trembling with the roar of cannon, the explosion of projec- tiles, the cracking of machine guns and rifles; and while the other half shrank back with awe, fear, terror and wonderment about the outcome of the greatest conflict in history, a mechanical monster, constructed by the Krupps, hurled huge metallic messengers of death and destruction with incon- ceivable rapidity and over incredible distances: this was the “BIG BERTHA” of war. But not until after the smoke of battle had settled was its peacetime counterpart revealed to civilization in the person of our own “Big Bertha.” A modern amazon of the court room, belching forth humilia- ting defeat and ignominious destruction to her pro- fessional foes; an invincible, indomitable and in- flexible barrister, strengthening the hopes of her clients by her courage, routing her adversaries with rapid-fire argument, swaying her listeners with her incomparable oratory, her irresistible person- ality, and her inexhaustible wit. Such is the cali- bre of the woman who chooses to forego a legal career of unparalleled brilliancy in order to travel the rose-strewn path of double blessedness. 132 THE POCKET JAMES R. ROADS Cincinnati, Ohio “Dusty” comes from the home of the red-brown pottery and the state that always puts “of Presi- dents” somewhere in its title. At present he is marking time and checking orders in the House of Representatives Restaurant, but after his candidacy for the LL.B. degree at National is successfully ended in June, he expects to take the next step toward emulating the brilliant example of the legal lights of his native state — in other words, “Dusty” intends to be a leading lawyer in his bailiwick. After having heard him raise objections to oppos- ing counsel’s argument in Moot Court, we wonder how he managed to get through the marriage ceremony without saying “I object,” instead of “I will.” He did his part of the debating in the de- bating societies of the school, and is a member of the Sigma Delta Kappa (Legal) Fraternity. OLIVE F. VIANNE ROBINSON Des Moines, Iowa The little lady with the long name joined us in our third year, and immediately made us wish she had not waited so long. Her genial person- ality, her smile, and her ability to make friends, have made Olive a very popular member of the class, with men and woman alike. Her popularity, however, has not kept her from studying, any- where along the line, for when she joined us she had already earned the LL.B. degree at Cumber- land University, Tennessee, and had passed the Tennessee Bar examination. She is now candidate for the LL.M. and M.P.L. degrees at National. Her hobby is playing the saxophone, which she proposes to continue, no matter what happens. It will be too bad if this promising young Portia gives up law to manage a husband, but, feeling sure she will not long be allowed to “go it alone,” we can but hope that the lucky man will be in need of a law partner as well as a life partner. 133 THE POCKET JOHN HENRY ROGERS Speedwell, Tennessee “Tennessee” is a real regular dirt farmer (he says so himself) when he is not a student. At present the farming is secondary to working for the LL.B. degree at National, for, as Old Doc. Munyon would say, “There is a reason.” We don’t know the color of her hair and eyes, but whatever they are, the Party of the Second Part is satisfied. “Tenn’s” avowed fondness for Night Owling and African Golfing will have to shift when the Party of the First Part appears on the scenes. John Henry spent nine months with the American Expeditionary Forces, France, with the Marine Corps, 11th Regiment Machine Gun Com- pany. He is a member of the Friday Evening Club, and is faithful in his attendance upon classes in school. He has not decided exactly what his plans for the future will be, but he expects to participate in some form of legal activity. HILARIO RUBIO Las Vegas, New Mexico Hilario breezed in from one of the Irrigation Districts of the Arid West, and then proceeded to proceed — Dancing, driving, golfing, marrying, stenoging and typewriting, and studying law. He is a member of the New York Club and the Rhode Island Club of National, so it looks as if our friend is a genuine Citizen of the World. He has been a hard worker in the school, and has taken part in all the class activities. He served as member of the Executive Committee of the Fresh- man Class, as Chairman of the Entertainment Committee of the New York Law Club, and he has had his fling at argumentation in the Alvey Debating Society. His special specialty among our law subjects, judging from the part he has taken in class discussions, seems to be Constitutional Law, with International Law running a close second. He is a candidate for the LL.B. degree, and when he has received it he expects to enter the practice of law, perhaps in his home state. 134 THE POCKET DAVID H. SGHATZOW Brooklyn, New York “Dave” stands “aces high” with his class and is always ready to give you his fatherly advice if you can get through the crowd that collects around him all of the time. He is a member in good standing of the War College and about ’steen other clubs. He has served as President of the New York State Law Society of the National University Law School, and he is a member of the Advisory Committee for the 1926 Year Book. Dave has a proclivity for annoying traffic cops with his in- fractions of the speed rules. From his youth he has been an enthusiastic lover of camping, hence he affiliated himself with the Boy Scouts in New York City, has been a member about ten years, and at the present time is in charge of a unit in Washing- ton. He expects to go back to New York to prac- tice law and who knows but that his neighbors will recognize his ability and send him back to Congress? We hope they will, Dave! GEORGE H. SGHOOLMEESTERS Litchfield, Minnesota The only nickname George will admit is that his wife calls him “Sweetheart” — sometimes!! That will never do at all, and we hereby dub him “Sweetheart” all the time, and hope that friend wife will accept the correction. George has never been very noisy on the “Campus,” in the War College, or in the class-rooms, but has nearly al- ways been ready for any of the instructors, except that he had some slight understanding with Judge Siddons concerning some of the lesser points on the subject of Evidence. At the dances, we could always count on seeing him, and his record in other matters is equally good. During his first term in school, George was secretary of the Alvey De- bating Society. He is active in the Knights of Columbus. At present he is a law clerk in the Post Office Department. He is a candidate for the degrees of Bachelor and Master of Laws, and expects to work like Helen B. Happy. Oh, yes, we forgot to add that Sweetheart is still a newly- wed, as he reports having “jumped the broom” on September 1, 1925. 135 THE POCKET JOHN B. SCHWOYER Kutztown, Pennsylvania Believe it or not, they call him “Bieber.” He is single, and is employed in the Patent Office as a patent examiner. Though he excels at tennis, it is hard to find an equal for him on the dance floor. He has taken an active part in the debating societies of the school, and has always measured up as a good student. He is a candidate for the LL.B. degree. He already holds the degree of Chemical Engineering, conferred by Old Lehigh. During the World War he served with the Chemi- cal Warfare Service. His plans for the future have not taken concrete form as yet, but it is not like Schwoyer not to make things hum whenever he gets going. LANE LEWIS SEITZ Bowie, Maryland Did you note the legal domicil of our Master of the Rolls? Yes, that’s it, but so far as we know propinquity to the racetrack has never perturbed Lane’s equanimity. He has been too busy in the race for knowledge to let the other kind bother him. He attended Charlotte Hall Military Acad- emy for three years, had one year at Baltimore Polytechnic Institute, one year at Johns Hopkins Uni- versity, and now is rounding out his third year at National as candidate for the LL.B. degree. The Maryland Bar comes next, and then the practice of law in the old home state. ‘‘Judge’’ has taken a hand in all school activities, and whenever nis shining beam is not in evidence everything seems to “go black.” He displayed his oratorical ability in the debating societies, and has given expression to his vivid imagination as a member of the Per- sonnel Committee of The Docket. He belongs to the Theodore Roosevelt Club, the Calvin Coolidge Club, and the Maryland Club, of National, and is a member of the Sigma Nu Phi (Legal) Fraternity. 136 THE POCKET R. G. SELBY Hillsboro, Kentucky Selbv is an auditor, is single, is interested in athletics generally, but he does not acknowledge having what some call a hobby. He belongs to a number of fraternal organizations, including the Masonic Lodge, the local ork Rite Masonic bodies, Almas Temple of the Shrine, the Ionic Club, and the Sigma Delta Kappa Fraternity. During the World War he served with the United States Field Artillery at Camp Taylor, Kentucky. He did his part in the debating societies of the school, has been a quiet but faithful student, and is a candi- date for the LL.B. degree. After graduation he expects to enter the practice of law, but his plans are as yet uncertain. Good luck, Selby, wherever you go ! WILLIAM F. SHEA Olyphant, Pennsylvania The chief business in life of this fortunate mem- ber of our class is concerned with studying law — in other words, William F. is just “student. ’ And a good one, faithful and conscientious, he is too. He breaks the monotony of “plugging” at the law by playing tennis and bridge, by “tripping the light fantastic toe’’ (or does he do the “Charles- ton?”), and by “sparking " (or is it parking?) — at any rate he’s single. He is a member of the Delta Chi Fraternity, Knights of Columbus, and Fraternity Club of New York. We do not know what attracts him to the Big Town, whether the White Lights of The Greatest Street in the World, the Metropolitan Opera, the Various Follies, or the Wonderful Opportunities, but we have it from him that he is bent on out-distancing his class- mates who aspire to fame won at the D. C. Bar, for he expects to practice law in New York City, along with the fifteen thousand (plus or minus) others who have beat him to it. Success! 137 THE POCKET NORMAN EARLE SILL Cleveland, Ohio Mechanical Engineer, married, follower of Nim- rod and of Isaac Walton, good fellow, earnest student — that’s Sill from the Buckeye State. First Lieutenant in the Ordnance Reserve of the Army, he lets his joining go at that. We have never heard him express any antagonistic view on the subject of school organizations — he just prefers to be “plain student.” When he has received the LL.B. degree, for which he is a candidate, he intends to practice Admiralty law in Cleveland. Whether this decision is the result of the splendid teaching of Justice Robb, or the result of a boy- hood love of the water and familiarity with the twinkling of the little red, blue and green lights of the vessels that ply the waters of Lake Erie, we do not pretend to say, but we are sure the Rum Fleet and the Pirate Crew will heave ho when he appears on the scene. Salute General Average ! HAROLD M. SLATER Sarnia, Ontario, Canada “Jimmy” is a Britisher by birth, don’t you know, and while he tells us he has two hobbies, golf and dancing, we believe he should have included a third — traveling. He attended Durham University at Newcastle-on-Tyne, England, during 1919-20, the following year he matriculated at the Uni- versity of Michigan, then returned to Durham, from which he received the B.S. degree in 1922. Next we find him back is good old U. S. A., ear- nestly pursuing a course in Foreign Service at Georgetown University. He also attended George- town Law School two years before coming to Na- tional, where he is a candidate for the degree of LL.B. He is a member of Delta Sigma Pi Inter- national Fraternity. At present is employed as an examiner of claims in the Insurance Department, U. S. Shipping Board, and plans to practice law, specializing in Admiralty, somewhere on the Cana- dian side of the Great Lakes. We are glad to have met you, Jimmy. Good luck! 138 the: pocket EDGAR B. SMITH Fort Myer Heights, Virginia “Bill,” as he is called by his friends, is a mem- ber of that vast army of civilians known as Gov- ernment clerks. He is married, and his favorite pastimes are tennis and driving (whether golf balls or autos, we do not know). Like the ma- jority of the men of our class, he was a member of Uncle Sam’s war forces, serving with Company M, 73rd Infantry. He is a candidate for the LL.B. degree, and, as everybody knows, he has been a faithful, diligent, and intelligent seeker after legal knowledge. He is a Mason and a member of the Knights of Pythias. WILFRED STEARMAN Norfolk, Virginia “Will” came to us at the beginning of this year from one of the other law schools about town, and those of us that know him regret that he waited so long to introduce us to his charming and smiling countenance. During the late war he was Chief Petty Officer in the United States Navy, and at present is still serving the Navy Depart- ment as clerk. He registers as single, and makes no acknowledgment as to when he expects to change his civic status. But he enjoys canoeing — a hopeful sign. He is a member of Masonic Lodge, Stansbury No. 24, and is candidate for the LL.B. degree. His plans after graduation are yet in the nebulous phase. 139 T HE POCKET HAROLD ROBERT STEPHENSON SCOTTSVILLE, VIRGINIA The chronicle of only the high spots in the career of “Steve Himself " would require much more than the allotted space, but what matter — it is all written indelibly in the hearts of his classmates! In the World War he served in the Military In- telligence Section of the Army, and with the 163rd Infantry as 1st Sergeant, Provisional Ambulance Company. When the big fight was over he was employed as an investigator for Uncle Sam, and later, in the same capacity for Bertrand Emerson, Jr., after Mr. Emerson left the office of the District Attorney. As we all know, he is a Veteran of the Old Guard of the school, being among the first to enroll with the class of ' 26. He is a mem- ber of the Sigma Delta Kappa (Legal) Fraternity, Knights Templar, Masonic Club and Democratic Club of National, and Disabled Veterans of the World War. He represented the class at Bridge- ' water College in 1923, and was Gold Medal speaker for the school in 1924-25. But in class politics Steve was the whizziest of the whizz Bangs. Look: Freshman year, Sergeant-at-Arms ; Sophomore year, President of the class; Senior year, Class Orator and Grand Dragon of the Great Moot Court. With such a record, and armed with his LL.B. degree, of course our Steve will practice law, and likewise, of course, he will be a howling success. SHIRLEY STEPHENS Shelbyville, Tennessee “Steve’’ entered National in 1917, left to help win the war as a Yeoman in the Navy, and re- turned in time, we are happy to say, to finish the race for the LL.B. degree along with the rest of the class. At present he holds a responsible posi- tion in the United States Customs Service, which he expects to retain, using his legal knowledge to aid him in going higher. He is a member of the Masonic Naval Lodge No. 4. His school activities have been confined chiefly to debating, in which he took a creditable part, or so say those who heard him hold up his end of a ‘‘red hot " argument. He anticipated Judge Willet’s oft repeated advice in the Moot Court — “Of course you will marry and settle down. Of course you will do that. Yes, you must do that ’ 140 THE POCKET EDWARD SWARTZ Philadelphia, Pennsylvania Eddie comes from what some people call “the slow town ’ but let no one attach anything insinua- tive of slowness to him, for he is far from it — but let his record speak for him. He was not slow at all in joining the forces of America in the World War, becoming a member thereof soon after the declaration of war in 1917. He was seriously wounded in battle, was hospitalized at Walter Reed Hospital, and was discharged from that hospital in December of 1923. Then he entered National as a Vocational Trainee, a candidate for the LL.B. degree, and everybody knows that he has been a good and faithful student. Baseball, golf, and hunting — the hobbies of Eddie — are suggestive of anything but slowmess. Observe, further, he is a member of Pentalpha Lodge, F.A.A.M., Mount Vernon Chapter, R.A.M., National University Ma- sonic Club, and Sigma Delta Kappa Fraternity. He expects to practice law in Washington after his graduation. His classmates wish him good luck. RAYMOND L. TAYLOR Zeandale, Kansas Raymond, according to the list, is a compatriot of Carrie Nation, “Sockless Jerry,” Bob Ingals, and the rest of the immortals of the Sunflower State, and if he ever changes his mind and goes back home to practice law, some future Personnel Editor of The Docket , writing up some other am- bitious Kansan, will add to the list, “and Raymond L. Taylor.” For Raymond is a quiet, earnest stu- dent, and will make his mark in the profession. But Kansas is not included in his plans for the future — he expects “to make fame and fortune in Washington.” We know he will not be a boot- legger, we feel sure he will not be a lobbyist, so we must leave you guessing as to how he intends to work this miracle. At present he is employed in the Veterans’ Bureau, and is a candidate for the LL.B. degree at National. He enlisted as Pri- vate in the Air Service, in 1917, and was dis- charged as Sergeant Major in December, 1918. He now holds the Reserve rank of Second Lieu- tenant. He is a member of the Masonic Order, the American Legion, and the Sigma Nu Phi (Legal) Fraternity. (Last minute news: He’s married ! ) 141 THE POCKET SAMUEL H. TAYLOR Mt. Ranier, Maryland Samuel H. says he has no nickname, but we might easily call him “Smiling Sammy.” Study- ing law and attending to the business at hand con- stitute his hobbies just now. We surmise that the business is propertly attended to; we know the studying is, for he is a faithful and intelligent member of the class. He is already a member of the District of Columbia Bar, but is a candidate for the LL.B. degree at National. He has not confided his plans, but he will practice some branch of the legal profession, no doubt, when he comes ’round to it. During the World War he served in France with the 15th Company A.S.M. He has acquitted himself creditably in his Moot Court ap- pearances, from which we judge that he will be able to hold his own with opposing counsel in the Real Court. OSCAR A. TRAMPE Golconda, Illinois This blushing member of our class comes from the town that takes its name from the “ruined city” of history, made famous by its diamond output. We don ' t know what this particular Golconda in the southeast corner of the great state of Illinois is famous for, but it is enough that it is or ever was “home” to “Derby.” But as “Derby” desires to make it the scene of his race for fame and fortune we will know, some day, what put the town in the new edition of the atlas. For this quiet, unassuming, earnest student is just the kind to surprise everybody when the time comes. While working for the LL.B. degree he keeps the cash straight in the House of Representatives Res- taurant. He did his turn in the debating societies of the school, and is a member of the Phi Beta Gamma Legal Fraternity. He expects to go back home to practice law. 142 THE POCKET FRANCIS W. TRAPP District of Columbia Francis received his early education in the public schools of Washington and subseqently graduated from Central High School as the President of the Class of 1921. He joined us in the fall of 1924 and since has met with much success in all his studies. He has all the requisites of a real stu- dent, ambition, ability, and the desire to succeed. During his stay at National, he has made many friends, due to his genial personality. He is at present the Associate Editor of the National Uni- versity Law Review. His occupation is that of salesman for the Potomac Electric Power Com- pany, but we are sure that this will change, for in the year 1950 Francis expects to be railway at- torney for W.R.E. Company. His pet hobby is his dog. “Love me, love my dog,” is his motto. A word to the wise is sufficient, girls. Francis is candidate for the LL.B. degree, and is a member of Phi Beta Gamma Legal Fraternity, Beta Chapter. CLARENCE VANDERMARK Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania Vandermark — “Van,” we call him — is a quiet, likeable chap, not prone to talk but to do. He is a cracker-jack stenographer-bookkeeper. Despite his tendency to play a silent role, he made a credit- able record in Moot Court and in classroom work. He is a candidate for the LL.B., and when he has received it, and has been admitted to whatever bar he decides to tackle, he will begin to make the “mark” part of his name count in the community in which his shingle hangs. He is not much of a “joiner,” and for that reason, perhaps, he goes down on the record as single. 143 the; pocket FRANK VALENTA Northampton, Massachusetts Behold the curly crowned czar of the Famous Village! Now smiling mischievously in the gen- eral direction of rustling silk; now carrying on a dangerous Hirtation; now asphyxiating half the membership of the War College with his well- known charcoal -and -cabbage burner; a man of as many moods as a temperamental prima donna; one with as many parts as a knocked-down Ford — that’s the charter member of the Society of Sleep- ing Students, otherwise known as the Three Vs (you remember them — Viault, iehmann, and Valenta) . With it all, he has held his own in the class in his candidacy for the LL.B. degree. He is a member of the Sigma Delta Kappa Legal Fraternity, Mu Chapter, of which he is treasurer. He has participated in the debates of the War Col- lege, and is a candidate for the office of Grand Kleagle of that worthy organization. FRANK VERDI Buffalo, New York Trying to compete with the wonderful scholastic record set by his brother Steve, who was graduated from National in 1924, no doubt accounts for Frank’s seriousness and earnest pursuit of the study of law during his freshman year. We are glad, however, that he decided to let the scholastic laurels of the family remain with his big brother and be satisfied to be just an ordinary, average student, because we, as a class, have profited greatly bv his untiring efforts to put things across. At the beginning of our junior year we find Frank on a picked team of debaters of the Miller De- bating Society, of which society he was subse- quently elected president for two successive terms. “Chick” is fond of everything in the way of sports, particularly if the Senators are losing and the Athletics are in the lead. He is a member of the Phi Beta Gamma Legal Fraternity and was re- cently installed in the office of Chief Justice of that fraternity. He is a candidate for the LL.B. degree. 144 THE POCKET ALBERT VAN VIAULT Pawtucket, Rhode Island “Al” — “Van” — “VIAWLT’’ — Albert Van Viault — Signal Snoozer of the Society of Student Sleepers! Here he is! It was “Al” who gave “local color,” “atmosphere ’ zip and zest to the class in the good old Freshman days. Not even our Professorial Trio of Loud Speakers (Boone, Emerson and Mun- ter), our Chief Quip Flinger (O’Donnell), or our Prime Minister of the Story Tellers’ Club (Syme), in their happiest moods, could disturb the peaceful slumbers of our “Van.” And yet, when the grades were entered, he was always “there.’’ In fact, he copped credits so fast that he is now conspicuous by his absence. But he will be on hand, no doubt, when the LL.B. degrees are being handed out on June 12. His fraternal affiliations are listed under the letters: S.D.K. (Greek), M.W.A. (English), I.B.F. (International). (Ask him what they mean). During our first two years Van took an active part in debating, and was one of the mem- bers to accompany the team to Bridgewater in 1925. He was Vice-President of the Class in our junior year, and was Junior Editor of The Docket for 1925. He is single now, BUT — ! JAMES CAESAR VITULLO Youngstown, Ohio Vitullo is a member of the graduating class of the Law School and likewise of the School of Busi- ness Administration and Government. He is a member of the Knights of Columbus and is Vice- President of the Nu Faba Club. He is secretary of the School of Business Administration, in which he is candidate for the degree B. C. S. When he has received this and the LL. B. degree he expects to practice in Ohio. Before coming to National he attended George Washington University Law School. Among his diversions hand ball has the preference. 145 THE POCKET CARL M. WALKER Pierre, South Dakota The “Chief ' hails from the West and says he is headed in the same direction when our class disbands and the beckoning finger of the “skilligin” LAW summons us to the four corners of the earth. Wherever the “Chief” pitches his tent, there will be a real lawyer. He will “eat ’em up,” in the court room, as he did on the battle fields during the Big War, or as he does now when he takes a turn on the golf links or hunting preserves. He does not intend to linger around the halls of learn- ing after the LL.B. degree has been coferred upon him, but will plunge right into the school of experi- ence. He has not divulged, so far as we know, the secret of the particular line he expects to fol- low in the practice of law, but we imagine he will take, and handle well, everything that comes along. He is an Elk, and a member of the Sigma Alpha Epsilon (Legal) Fraternity, and of the Sacred Order of Benedicts. HJALMAR A. WALLERSTEDT Lindsborg, Kansas It does not appear on the record that “Wally” is of Scotch descent, but the name by which his intimates know him is good old Caledonian for “good fortune,” and “prosperity.” And we are agreed that when our confrere from Kansas finishes the job of studying law, receives the LL.B. degree for which he is a candidate, and proceeds to “cash in” in the legal market, he will demon- strate that there is something in a name. He is a member of Seminole Tribe No. 35, I.O.R.M., and of Silver Moon No. 15 D. of P. Sounds like a War Dance, especially when he adds that his fa- vorite outdoor sport is hunting. That is, it used to be. We understand that he is married, and so the hunting season is closed, so far as “Wally” is concerned. 146 THE POCKET HERBERT S. WARD Portland, Oregon Ward was born a Hoosier but migrated to Ore- gon at an early age. He is now Comptroller for the Alien Property Custodian. The War is really responsible for his being in the East; he was an Ordnance Sergeant for the Oregon National Guard when the War broke out but transferred into the 1st Battalion of Oregon Engineers, sub- sequently the 116th Engineers, 41st Division. He did a year’s service overseas and was invalided back to the U.S.A., after he had graded and im- proved (he would say u constructed ,, ) the Ameri- can Cemetery at Paris, France. He is a member of Mt. Tabor Lodge, A.F. A.M., of Portland, Oregon, Albert Pike Consistory Lodge, M.R.S. No. 1, Washington, D. C., and Federal Post Veterans of Foreign Wars; is fond of driving, and usually spends his spare time tinkering with his battleship. He is candidate for the LL.B. degree at National, and expects to return to “God’s Country” to en- gage in active practice. SIDNEY L. WARDWELL Pembina, North Dakota Mr. Wardwell is another of the crowd of stu- dents whom we have had the pleasure of welcom- ing into the class this year. He had four years at the University of North Dakota before starting his law work, and spent two years at George Washington University Law School before coming to National. During his preparation for the prac- tice of law he occupies his days as Associate En- gineer in the Bureau of Yards and Docks of the Navy Department. After he has acquired his LL.B. degree and tackles the intricacies of law in the school of experience, with the cooperation of his competent and interested “side partner,” we expect great things of him. He is a member of Mt. Vernon Chapter No. 3, and the Kirkside Golf Club, and when not on the job in office, school, or links, he is pretty apt to be motoring, for that is one of his favorite diversions. 147 THE POCKET W. FRANK WHELAN Louisville, Kentucky Hailin ' from the Horse Racin ' State, W. Frank evidently brought with him the idea that it is all right to race an automobile through the streets of Washington; or perhaps he thought the best way for a rising young lawyer to rise is to get some real practice. Anyway, after “tellin’ it to the Judge,” he decided that perhaps he and Pierre Brogue had better come back to National and study for a couple of years more before starting out “on their own.” So, he is generously helping to attend to Uncle Sam ' s business in the clerical line while finishing the job at National, where he is a candidate for the LL.B. degree. In addition to breaking the monotony by indulging in fast driving, he plays golf and tennis, all of which goes to show that Mrs. Whelan has one of those “regular fellows” for a husband. When it is all over with the class of 1926, he is going back to Louisville, and after passing the Kentucky Bar he will proceed to add to the fame of the home town of the late lamented “Marse Henry.” CLYDE A. WHITESIDE Simpson, Illinois From the Shores of the Ohio From the wide and rolling prairie Came the youngest of our classmates Came our cottonheaded “Whitey.” Came to sling some hash or shoe strings Anything to make a living While he wood with strength and ardor That elusive Mistress — Law. “Whitey’’ would have one believe he has done nothing but study since 1923, and if we didn’t know his capacity for sleep, we would almost take his quietness during classes to be attention. Nothing disturbed his youthful slumbers — Judge Siddons, Prof. Munter (phew! some sleeper) or Prof. Syme — until one night when he was rudely awakened by a loud voice shouting ten dollars or ten days. Since that he ' s taken up golf and we understand auto racing is one of the closed pages of his past. He belongs to the Calvin Coolidge Club, in the Phi Beta Gamma he has been promoted from Cus- todian of the Custard Pies to Associate Justice, and for all his youth he wears his honors with dignity. He is a candidate for the LL.B. degree. 148 THE POCKET NATHANIEL E. WHITING Pierre, South Dakota After shooting up a regiment or so of Germans during the World War, he obtained an audience with the Kaiser; one look at our hero was enough for that gentleman, who immediately packed his week end bag and left for Holland. After finish- ing up that little job Nathaniel E. came back home and staged a little private war of his own, which same maneuvers resulted in prompt hauling down of the young lady ' s colors, and hoisting of the Whiting fiag. While earning his LL.B. degree he has been acting as a Claims Examiner in the Vet- erans Bureau, but he intends to practice his chosen profession in the near future. He is a member of Delta Chi Legal Fraternity and Wandering Greeks. ROBERT C. WHITLEY North Wilkesboro, North Carolina “Whit” hails from the Tar Heel state, where he is now a member of the Bar. He received his LL.B. degree from National last year and comes back to us this year for his LL.M. and M.P.L. degrees. He is a member of Uncle Sam’s army of Government employees, and is also affiliated with the F.A.A.M., and National University Ma- sonic Club. “Jake” served in the World War with the 67th Artillery, Regular Army. He is single, and we are at a loss to understand how such a nice, likeable chap has gotten by so long. Maybe it ' s his hobby that keeps him single — pinochle. We understand he does right well when he has a good partner. “Whit” expects to return to North Caro- lina to practice law. Your classmates wish you success in your legal career. 149 THE POCKET BURTON R. WILBUR Washington, D. C. “Burt” is another member of the Voteless Throng. Unassuming and retiring in manner, he is a real fellow, with a heart as big as his body. He is a candidate for the LL.B. degree, and it is a sure bet that when the final averages of the class are disclosed “Burt” will be near the top, as he knows his “stuff.” Professor Patterson, as well as a certain member of the class, can vouch for the statement that he knows the difference between apples and potatoes. His particular hobby is “fast driving,” and it is assumed that he means driving a Rolles Royce and not any of the little spheres that one drives over green grass or green felt. His school activities consisted particularly of work, and the result of his activities may be seen in his standing in the class. He is a member of the Phi Beta Gamma Legal Fraternity. He says he is a life member of the Order of Confirmed Old Bache- lors — but why such interest in Scranton, Pennsyl- vania, Burt? Surely not the climate! RICHARD ALVEY WORTHINGTON Frederick, Maryland When the band starts playing “Maryland, my Maryland,” Dick stands up and shouts as if it were “The Star Spangled Banner.” He was with Company A, 1st Maryland Infantry, down on the Mexican Border, in 1916-17, one year at Camp McClellan, then OVER THERE. He had a year of foreign service, with Company A, 115th In- fantry, 29th Division, in the Alsace-Lorraine and the Meuse-Argonne sectors. From November, 1919, to November, 1920, he spent with Company F of the 1st Maryland Infantry. He is a member of the Mu Chapter of the Sigma Delta Kappa Intercol- legiate Law Fraternity, of which he was Secretary (1924-25) and Vice-Chancellor (1925-26), and is Grand Auditor of Grand Chapter of the fraternity. He intends to practice law after he has received the LL.B. degree and has disposed of other neces- sary formalities. He will succeed, of course. 150 THE POCKET GEORGE W. WRIGHT Baltimore, Maryland George was born in the famous old city of Baltimore, but has resided in the District most of his life. He has already acquired no little fame as a Patent Attorney and has written a number of interesting articles on patent law for the National University Law Review besides acting as Editor- in-Chief of that periodical for the past two years. He is a member of the Knights of Columbus, has the honor of being one of the charter members of the Raccar Canoe Club, and is a member of Phi Beta Gamma Legal Fraternity, being Honorable Chief Justice of the latter. During the war he served with the National Volunteer Home Guard, composed of Patent Examiners and Attorneys. George married early and is now the proud “papa 1 ’ of three fine children. He is very fond of canoe- ing and fishing. In his spare moments you will always find him some where in the vicinity of the Phi Beta Gamma Fraternity house located on the Potomac near Cabin John Bridge. After re- ceiving the LL.B. and M.P.L. degrees he expects to continue his pratice of patent law in the District. SAMUEL R. ZETZER Baltimore, Maryland Sam, our classmate from the University of Mary- land, is one of the few students who really is a shining light in the legal world. The Mayor of Baltimore thought so much of him that he ap- pointed him a “Justice of the Peace at Large,” and he is one of the few who become “judge” before they are even lawyers. Sam is contemplating mar- riage immediately upon graduation. He is at pres- ent engaged in the real estate business in the city of Baltimore, but upon graduation and admission to the Maryland Bar, he expects to become a full- fledged lawyer. He likes to drive his automobile at a rapid rate of speed, especially when one arm is encircling the waist of the one and only of his life. He is a member of the Baltimore City Press Club, and of the Alpha Beta Phi Legal Fraternity at National. As a debater he cannot be out-done, but as a maker of fine love speeches they say he has no peer. We are sure that Sam will make a sucess of life, and that twenty years from now we will pay visit to the “Governor” of the state of Maryland. 151 THE POCKET Note: For one reason or another no biographical sketch accompanies the following pic- tures. — Ed. JOHN J. CONNOLLY F. R. HEFFERAN 152 THE POCKET H. L. ROGERS D. A. RUSH PATRICK J. TAFT 153 THE POCKET Note: For one reason or another the following biographical sketches are not accompanied by pictures. — Ed. SILVERIO P. ALMIRANEZ Mauban, Philippines Almiranez received the LL.B. degree in 1925, and is now a candidate for the LL.M. He is Counselor of the Philippine Columbians, and has taken an active part in this organization. He is fond of dancing and a lover of good music. He has devoted particular attention to Constitutional and International Law, and while we are not in possession of knowledge of his plans for the future, we imagine that he will return to the Philippines and devote his time to diplomatic and international affairs. JOSEPH J. ARDIGO District of Columbia “Joe” is a native Washingtonian, and received his early education at St. Patrick’s Academy, later attending Business High School, Strayer’s Business College and St. John’s College. After leaving school he was employed in the Panama Canal Zone for four years. Joe is a member of the Knights of Colum- bus, and golf is one of his favorite pastimes. We understand he is also a good baseball player, hav- ing seen much service with the sandlot teams of Washington. He received the LL.B. degree from National last year and is now a candidate for the M.P.L. degree. GEORGE L. BRANNON Midland City, Alabama G. L. was born in the “sunny south,” and re- ceived his early education from his father and mother. It is said he has one of the finest libraries in the country. He came to Washington in 1918, and for a short time was with the Navy Depart- ment, afterwards becoming an auditor in the Bu- reau of Internal Revenue. G. L. is married, and is a member of the Masons and Knights of Pythias. He received his LL.B. last year and is n ow a candidate for the LL.M. degree. His special hobby is fishing. JOHN N. BROWN Grove City, Pennsylvania “Brownie” believes he is always smiling when he is awake— and some of us can testify that “the angels talk” to him lots of times in the class. But no wonder, for he follows the strenuous and un- usual (at National) occupation of “student.” With golf and fast driving thrown in for good measure, “Brownie” is a busy man. He holds the degree of B.S. (in Engineering), and is a candidate for the LL.B. degree. He had two years of service with the 28th Division, American Expeditionary Forces, and is a member of the American Legion and the Veterans of Foreign Wars. He is a mem- ber of the Boulevard Club, and is perfectly will- ing to join the Married Men’s Club if satisfactorily proposed and indorsed. He expects to demonstrate that “it can be done” right here in Washington — at least he plans to prove that a “recent gradu- ate” can make a living practicing law in the shadow of the Law Factory. JAMES E. BURNS Washington, D. C. This quiet, unobtrusive young man came to Na- tional in the autumn of 1925, with the LL.B. degree from George Washington University Law School, and is now candidate for the LL.M. degree. He is married, and is at present a member of Uncle Sam’s peacetime army known as Government Clerks. During the World War he served as Pri- vate. Despite his modest demeanor he loves a skirmish, as those of us know who watched his Moot Court Cases, and others who have seen him root for his favorites on the Diamond. He is a member of the Alpha Tau Omega Fraternity. The surmise that he likes a scrap is further verified by his statement that he expects to practice law in the District of Columbia. We can’t imagaine that he will not be a successful torreador in the legal bullfight, so those of us who look over the arena from the student bleachers are convinced that it means SOME scrap for him (and the rest of us “linger longer” admittees). But your class- mates are behind you, James, so go to it! 154 THE POCKET J. WESLEY CLAMPITT, JR. District of Columbia Clampitt is a native Washingtonian and was educated in the public schools, of the District. He graduated from Business High and entered the employ of the Union Trust Company. He re- ceived his LL.B. degree last year and is now a candidate for the LL.M. degree. During the school year 1925 he was an active member of the Miller Debating Society, and is a member of the Sigma Delta Kappa Legal Fraternity. His future plans are not disclosed but we predict a successful career. MARGARET A. CONNOR Holyoke, Massachusetts It is not fair for anyone to travel all the way through a university without a nickname. As we have not been advised of any, we are going to be original and call Miss Connor Portia. Portia spends her working hours as secretary to the Spe- cial Assistant to the Secretary of the Treasury — (Whew!!), and during her spare moments, when not engaged in her studies, she may be found out in the air pursuing the elusive golf ball. Always ready at recitations, and elsewhere, for that matter, we predict for Portia a long and prosperous career in her favored profession. Miss Connor never misses a meeting of the Massachusetts Clu b. She is a candidate for the degree of Bachelor of Laws. PAUL HAROLD EULER Indianapolis, Indiana “Flopitt” is a true Hoosier, hailing from the capital of the great state of Indiana. Not con- tent with statistics as a wherewithal to earn a liv- ing, he decided to try his fortune in the law; so, having first provided himself with a life partner, and spending a short time at Georgetown Uni- versity, he arrived at National to obtain an LL.B. He proudly boasts a membership in Mu Chapter of Sigma Delta Kappa, and as for sports, — well judge for yourself, remembering of course that Paul is “very much married”, when we tell you that when we asked him what his favorite pastime is, he answered “Arguing.” ’Sail right with us! He is specializing in Corporation Law and his plans for the future include, besides a dove cote for two, a job as Assistant Corporation Coun- sel “back home.” A. HAMILTON DOUGHERTY District of Columbia A Washingtonian, small in stature, but with ambitions quite the opposite. Dougherty is one of the “biggest” little men in the real estate busi- ness in the District. To see him around the Uni- versity you wouldn’t think that such a quiet chap with nice curly locks had much show in the business world, but don’t fool yourself, — he is there “with the goods,” in business as well as in the study of law, as his progress in business and his high marks in school testify. His school activities have been confined to attending all school dances, listening to the leading jurist of the day in the War College, and supporting the Phi Beta Gamma Legal Fra- ternity, of which he is an active member. Big game hunting is his hobby, but he doesn’t tell us where his hunting ground is — whether the Board Walk at Atlantic City, the Stock Exchange in New York, the forests of the Northwest, or the jungles of Darkest Africa. Pehaps he means that he will be a “corporation lawyer” after he lands the LL.B. for which he is working. ELEANOR B. FREAR Ballston, Virginia Eleanor is a real honest-to-goodness SOUTH- ERNER. She was born and raised down in OL’ VIRGINNY. Fact of the matter is, she doesn’t think there’s any place quite like her native state, for she still holds forth at her place of birth. But then she hasn’t been there long enough to have heard the “Call of the Wild,” for Eleanor, you see, is very young. She’s an “A No. 1” stenogra- pher (and being an “honest-to-goodness” “A No. 1” stenographer means success at anything, from Brief Writing to Bread Baking) ; therefore, boys, watch out, for when she gets her LL.B. and M.P.L., there’s no telling how far she may outdistance you. Her plans for the future are still indefinite, so, gentle- men, there’s still hope for you. Having in mind that she is still a free lance as far as matrimony goes, we expected a rare answer when we asked her favorite sport, but she just smiled sweetly and replied, VERY demurely, “Reading — not law.” Now isn’t that just like a woman! It might be history, or entomology, or — well — men’s thoughts, and so forth, in their eyes. Who knows? No matter. Whether Dainty Eleanor decides to prac- tice law on one client or many, she will make a good job of it. Be sure of that, boys ! 155 THE POCKET R. JEROME FLOOD, JR. Riverdale, Maryland “Dick” is a native Washingtonian and was a student at Georgetown University when the United States entered the World War. He left school to become a member of the Second Officers Training Camp at Fort Myer, Virginia, where he earned a commission as Lieutenant in the Regular Army. Later he was transferred to the Fifth Officers Training Camp at Fort Leavenworth, Kansas, where he served until discharged in April 1918, by reason of injuries received in line of duty. He re-enlisted in June, 1918, and served until the latter part of 1919. He served as Vice Consul to La Guaria, Venezuela, and resigned to enter National in 1922. He is a member of Sigma Nu Phi Legal Fraternity, and is a candidate for the LL.M. and M.P.L. degrees. WILLIAM P. HENLEY Mount Ranier, Maryland Bill comes from “Maryland, my Maryland ’ Having received the LL.B. degree last year, he is now a candidate for the LL.M. degree. He served in the Motor Transport Corps during the World War and held the rank of Sergeant upon discharge. He is employed in the Bureau of Internal Revenue. Bill is a Mason and is fond of tennis and motor- ing. He expects to practice law in Mt. Ranier and the District of Columbia. FRANK MARGINSKI Jupiter, Florida Mr. Marcinski received the LL.B. degree last year and is now a candidate for the LL.M. He had the reputation during his undergraduate days of being one of the burners of the “midnight oil.” His record is a creditable one and will doubtless continue to be so as he advances in the legal world. Mr. Marcinski served with the American Expeditionary Forces during the World War, and the fact that he is a compatriot by ancestry of Kosciusko signifies that his military record is one of which to be proud. He is reported as having the hobby of buying law books; by this time he ought to have Corpus Juris Cyc all paid for (un- like many of his less fortunate under-classmates), and many other legal commentaries and other texts must adorn the shelves of his study. CHARLES O. GRIDLEY Peoria, Illinois Whether our “Grid” takes his nickname from the “Gridiron Club” or not, we don’t propose to say, but anyway, he has already attained distinction as a newspaper correspondent. His military record is one of which we, his classmates, are justly proud: Service from March 23, 1917, to August 31, 1919, as 1st Lieutenant in the 132nd Infantry, service overseas for eighteen months, and participation in four of the major operations. He is already the proud possessor of a B.Sc., having obtained this de- gree at Northwestern University; he has come amongst us for the purpose of acquiring LL.B. He is a member of Delta Tau Delta, Delta Sigma Pi, (commerce), Sigma Delta Chi (journalistic), and the Bachelors Club. Yes indeed, Portias and others, he’s VERY ELIGIBLE; but his plans are “un- certain,” which we take to mean matrimonially as well as professionally. No matter what plans he may evolve as time goes on, we know he will work them out to a successful and brilliant con- clusion. That ' s “Grid’s” way of doing! MAURICE JUDD Washington, D. C. “Maurice the Silent,” a newspaper reporter par excellence, came into our midst unsung and with no blare of trumpets. Ere long, however, we learned to know the man who sometimes might be said to be as reticent as a certain distinguished gentleman from Massachusetts. Interview Mau- rice with the idea of giving him some favorable publicity (as in The Docket) and all that you will get from his vocal efforts, after considerable pause by him, is “no,” “none,” “nothing,” from which a person who is not acquainted with him would infer that he has only three words in his vocabulary. You would be far wrong, friend. He “shoots” a “mean” vocabulary if one can just get him started. He has the distinction of escaping, by a few votes, being the President of the class of 1926, indicating his popularity with the class. With the knowledge of law that he has acquired at National University Maurice will reach the highest pinnacle of jour- nalism, if he continues in that line, or of law, if he decides to enter the legal arena after he has been awarded the LL.B. degree. 156 THE POCKET SYDNEY N. MacINNIS District of Columbia Not only is “Mac” legally domiciled in the Dis- trict of Columbia, but he is already a member of that awesome institution which we “prospects” know as “THE D.C. BAR.” He has been attend- ing National for the last four years. He received the LL.B. degree with the class of 1925, and now he is a candidate for the LL.M. and the M.P.L. degrees. He plunged right into the practice of law after he graduated, and is now coming along in due form. He is a member of the Phi Gamma Delta Legal Fraternity, and of the University Club. During the war he served as Private, 151st Depot Brigade, Camp Devens, Mass. “Mr. Maginnis,” as last’s year’s Keeper of the Roll used to call him, has the respect and good wishes of his under- graduate fellow students, who see in him a top- liner in the profession. RAYMOND A. PHILIBERT St. Louis, Missouri “Phil” is not eligible for membership in the Bachelor’s Club, because he is very much married, and is the proud father of fine twin boys just thirteen months old. He has an enviable military record, having seen foreign service with Uncle Sam’s Sea Soldiers in the Mexican fracas of 1914 and in the San Domingo expedition of 1916. In addition, he had the unique distinction of serving as official photographer to President Wilson on the famous Peace Trip to France in November and December, 1918. At National “Phil” is a candidate for not one, but three degrees, and one of these days he will tack onto the end of his name these mystic letters, LL.B., LL.M., M.P.L. We feel sure that he will make a big success of his chosen pro- fession, and in the meantime, if you are interested in weatherstrips, just talk to Raymond A. Philibert and he will fix your house up so that you will save “fifty per cent in fuel alone.” JOHN M. ROBSION Barbourville, Kentucky From the Blue Grass state comes Johnny, and you all know what that means. Yes, he’s just a natural born politician, and expects to be elected to Congress whenever he gives the signal. In the meantime, by way of divertisement, he is clerk of the Committee on Mines and Mining of the House of Representatives, of which committee his father is chairman. To further occupy his spare time, the future Senator holds down a chair nightly (or ap- proximately so) in our midst at National, candidat- ing for the LL.B. degree. He is already a member of the Kentucky Bar (yes, the kind with the big B), but, appreciating the advantages of association with such “inflooence” as we have to offer, he joined our ranks for the homestretch. Remember us, Senator, when you reach The Hill ! ROBERT L. SAVAGE, JR. Portsmouth, Virginia “Bob” entered National from George Washing- ton University Law School, and as the end draws near he is particularly glad that he will no longer have to run to get his name on “that pesky roll” at the last minute. However, this amount of sprinting does not bother “Bob” other than tem- peramentally, as he keeps himself in perfect physical condition by means of his recreational activities. He is a follower of golf and tennis, and is very good at both games. He gets his greatest “kick,” however, from the outdoor sport of making pedes- trians hop, skip, and jump — for “Burt” is another member of the large and ever-increasing Frater- nity of Fast Drivers. By occupation he is a rail- road statistician, but his side-line is acting as special assistant to Dr. Putney. He is a member of the Sigma Nu and Delta Theta Phi fraternities. He is a candidate for the LL.B. degree, and after graduation expects, or hopes, first, to get married, and second, to settle down to the practice of law in Virginia. 157 T HE POCKET RAYMOND M. SHEA Naugatuck, Connecticut “Irish,” or “Milly,” as his friends call him, is a salesman for our old friends, John Byrne Com- pany, sellers of law books new and old. He is “single and satisfied.” He says to the world. “I am just twenty-one, have never been out with a girl, don’t know what it’s all about, but since my schools days are nearly over, I’m willing to learn.” We predict that he will find plenty of teachers among the flappers, bobbed and otherwise, along his path. He belongs to the Knights of Columbus, and numbers among his hobbies listening to the radicals argue in the War College. He is a can- didate for the LL.B. degree, and expects to return next year for the LL.M. After that he plans prac- ticing law in Connecticut and New York. CHARLES E. TRAVERS Washington, D. C. Travers is a native of “somewhere in Arizona.” He should be in Hollywood ; with his handsome face and manly physique he would crowd all the movie stars into the background. He is used to cowboys, but not of the drugstore brand. But when the West could offer no new thrills for him, he joined the Army and helped inform certain internationals that America is made up of fighting men. During his pursuit of legal knowledge he helps to keep things going straight in the Depart- ment of Justice. His activities at school, aside from working for the LL.B. degree, have been limited to the affairs of the Phi Beta Gamma Legal Fraternity. He is also a member of the Knights of Pythias. He expects to practice law, and if some movie director doesn’t rob the legal profession of a good man we are sure he will be a big hit on the legal screen. MILLARD FARRAR WEST Chevy Chase, Maryland Mr. West received the A.B. degree some years ago from Garrard College, and the LL.B. from National last year. He is now a candidate for the LL.M. degree. He has so completely arrived, professionally, that he is the resident partner of a prominent Chicago law firm, with offices in this city. Presumably he will continue this line of activity. He entered the Internal Revenue service in 1898 as Deputy Collector in his native state, Kentucky, and came to Washington in 1901, where he continued in the Revenue service until July 1922. He has also held the position of Deputy Commissioner of Accounts, Acting Commissioner of Internal Revenue, and Assistant Prohibition Commissioner. When the first important revenue measure was being considered in 1917, Mr. West was detailed by the Commissioner of Internal Rev- enue to the Finance Committee of the Senate. JOHN H. YOUNG Accomac County, Virginia “Cy” (don ' t ask us why “Cy”), was awarded the LL.B. degree in 1925, and now is candidate for LL.M. He is a member of the Sigma Nu Phi Fraternity and the Masonic Order, and had the reputation last year, which he has not lost, of being an all round booster. He is a thorough going sportsman, being a football fan, a lover of canoeing, a baseball enthusiast, and a lover of dancing. He spent two years at Washington and Lee and one year at Virginia Polytechnic, and was bayonet instructor at Camp Lee during the World War. He forsook the Bachelor’s Club last year, and has not changed his intention to remain in the District of Columbia and to practice law in this jurisdiction. 158 THE POCKET In The Great Moot Court Respectfully dedicated to Judge Glenn Willett of National University Law School. Where is the brilliant student Who starred the Freshman year And warbled maxims of the law Into our startled ear? His ready wit and wisdom, So apt with trite retort, Now strangely fails to function In the Great Moot Court. And where’s the natty Junior Precocious and astute, Whose legal declamations We trembled to refute? That intellect amazing, Whose logic none could thwart, Seems now to fail and falter In the Great Moot Court. And all those gifted Seniors Who filled us full with awe ; Whom Solomon might envy, So learned in the law; Where is the vaunted learning They gloried to disport? Why does it ebb and vanish In the Great Moot Court? Oh, embryo attorneys, Control your mounting pride And practice due humility Ere dismal woe betide; For overweening vanity Will furnish gruesome sport To those who view your antics In the Great Moot Court. — Van Ness Lawless, ’26. 159 THE POCKET When seniors snore it does not mean Their lives and hopes are all serene — The dance, perchance, did but entrance The dreams of queens and their demeans. Mid-winter Night’s Dream of the Champion Snoozer. 160 THE POCKET 161 the: pocket History of the Class of 1927 • “Days come and go like muffled and veiled figures, sent from a distant friendly party; but they say nothing; and if we do not use the gifts they bring, they carry them as silently away.” F the National University Law Class of 1927, or any of that knowledge- seeking body, have allowed the days to depart, bearing away the precious gifts of legal lore with which they came laden, we have not noticed it. If they have at times been tempted to harbor the illusion “that the present hour is not the critical, decisive hour,” the temptation has been successfully over- come and every member of the Junior Class has written it on his or her heart that every day that finds them drinking in that valuable knowledge imparted by learned and ex- perienced professors is “the best day in the year.” Truly, that is the spirit which ani- mates the Class of ’27; that is the spirit which was theirs when, as Freshmen, they listened to the first lectures of the course upon which they had entered ; that is the spirit which will send many of our confreres to places of responsibility and honor in the hundreds of communities throughout this country from which the National Uni- versity draws its ever splendid student body. The same wholesome ambition which brought the two hundred and fifty mem- bers together for the first time in October, 1924, remained the most powerful con- tributing factor in the repeated successes achieved by our class in social as well as academic activities during our first school year. From the outset our class organiza- tion was all that the most exacting could desire and all have shown themselves un- sparing and unselfish in individual and united effort for the advancement of the class and the honor of the Alma Mater. As Freshmen we were fortunate in the choice of officers whose election was the first real step toward organization. Perhaps the campaign lacked some of the bois- terous intensity that, on occasion, has characterized similar events in the school, but the outcome could scarcely have been more satisfying. Mr. Clement Taylor Robert- son proved both popular and zealous as our first president. This was not to be wondered at, since he brought to the office a wide experience in collegiate activity, in addition to which he manifested a native ability to arouse in his associates a lively and praiseworthy spirit of cooperation. In Miss Constance Fogle, Mr. “Gus” Bonanno, Mr. O. R. Lewis and Mr. E. R. Erickson, President Robertson found loyal, enthusias- tic and willing fellow-executives, with whom, and the further valuable assistance of an energetic social committee, he did a great deal toward the promotion of a most enjoyable and profitable first year. The class deeply regretted the departure of our first Vice-President, Miss Margaretta M. Campbell. The class was well represented at the various functions of a joint nature con- ducted by the student body; individual members distinguished themselves in the debates in which the school participated, and altogether there was little in the way of social activity which we did not aid in bringing to a successful outcome during our Freshman year. In fraternity functions, too, the class had its representatives, both as promoters and as participants. 1 62 THE POCKET It was not, however, in social activities alone that the Freshman Class of that year shone brilliantly ; they proved themselves real students time and again. It was our pleasure and privilege early to become the students of some of the “ National ' s” most distinguished professors, men whom nature had endowed with the gift of pedagogical talent, and experience with a wealth of practical knowledge with which their academic training in itself could never have supplied them. It is, perhaps, not too much to say that in few Law schools in this or any other country have the students the great advantage which the National University affords in respect of the prominence and recognized leadership of its Faculty in that field for which it strives to fit its students. Who, then, could fail to grasp with eager minds the gifts of wisdom which each day brought? Who shall blame us for the feeling that grew upon us, with the passing lectures of our first months, that the process of accumulating a storehouse of legal knowledge was not as difficult as we had anticipated. Was our delusion not, after all, due to the patience and thoroughness of our first instructors who, with “sinister” solicitude, led us by pleasant ways into the labyrinth ? Whosesoever the fault, the fact remains that there was developed a dangerous complacency which received its first real “Dent” when, toward the end of our first year, we were confronted with the mysteries of Wills and Administration and left to juggle with springing and shifting uses or to find the distinctions, if any, between lineal and collateral consanguinity. Then we asked the oft repeated question “death, where is thy sting?” The transition, if transition there be, from Freshmen to Juniors, dealt easily with the Class of ’27. True, we had passed from the care and guidance of some of our most esteemed instructors, true also, we had passed from the easy initial stages of our course into the real work of a law school ; but the class took up its burden for the second stage of the journey with as much vim as, and maybe with more determina- tion, certainly with more pleasurable anticipation, than had been experienced at the outset of the course. By this time, also, there had developed within the circle of our organization — for an organization the class had become, in the truest sense of the term — a genuine camaraderie born of a commonness of aim and endeavour. On October 15, 1925, we met, under the chairmanship of the retiring President, to nominate class officers for the ensuing term. Be it said to the honor of our political high lights, this important work was carried out with dignity, albeit lacking not at all in that enthusiasm which is the suitable accompaniment of such an event. A week later the balloting took place with the following result: President, Mr. C. G. Davis; Vice-President, Mr. A. S. Bonanno; Secretary, Miss Constance Fogle; Treasurer, Mr. Jerome G. Kaufman; Sergeant-at-arms, Mr. Adam A. Geibel ; Orator, Mr. A. S. Johnson. On the evening of November 2, our new President delivered his inaugural ad- dress, and if he had needed assurance that his election to the highest office in the gift of his classmates was a popular one, he received it in full measure there and then. President Davis’ ouline of the class policies to be pursued was characteristic of the man. His program was clear-cut but it was laid down in a manner which left no doubt of its ultimate fulfilment to the letter. Those who did not know Mr. Davis 163 THE POCKET well at the time have since then learned to appreciate his worth and ability, and as we draw toward the close of another year, the Class of 1927 feels more strongly each day that their second year President has in every sense merited the confidence they placed in him and the esteem in which they have held him. Miss Fogel and Mr. A. S. Bonanno had rendered such splendid service during the Freshman year that the class did itself the honor and favor of returning them to office. It was with regret that the class, early in the year, saw its Orator, Mr. A. S. Johnson, take his leave of the school to enter upon another career, that of the ministry. While entertaining the thought that we were losing a friend and associate of sterling worth, our conviction was that our erstwhile confrere was taking up a work for which nature had abundantly endowed him, and that the Bar’s loss would indeed be the Church s gain. Socially the year just passing has been one of repeated successes for the Junior Class. Our social committee, headed by Mr. W. F. Martin, and comprising such energetic workers as Miss Fogle, Miss Jarvis, Mr. Bonanno and Mr. Roland, have been the social life of the class. We can only trust that they feel their efforts have been given the practical appreciation of willing and ready cooperation. Our social committee took an active part in the promotion of successful dances held during the Winter at the Washington and the Raleigh hotels, while in debating the class had a record year. In the intercollegiate debate in which the National University defeated Bridgewater Col- lege on the evening of February 24, the University team was made up of two Junior Class men, Mr. Edwin F. Geary and Mr. Chester D. Bennett. Since the accession to the office of treasurer of Mr. Jerome G. Kaufman, the class finances have been exceed- ingly satisfactory and the close of the present year will find a considerable balance on hand. Viewing the year from the academic standpoint, we can but feel that it has been a period of profit and pleasure. Not only have we had a curriculum made up of the subjects which hold most interest for the law student but, in addition, we have had as our mentors in the pursuance of these courses men who on the Bench and at the Bar are recognized as masters of the subjects they teach. To sit under such instructors is at once a great advantage and a great honor ; to be guided by such teachers is to be privileged beyond the power of mere words to express. At Christmas the class ended its final course under Professor Barse than whom no one of the Faculty holds a warmer place in the hearts of the students of the Na- tional University Law School. Gifted as a teacher, well-versed as a lawyer, Professor Barse gave to the Class, as he has given to every class that has passed through his capable hands, the best that was his to give, and the ovation that was given him on the evening of his closing lecture to the second year Class was but a mild expression of the high regard in which every student held him. Professor Roger O’Donnell left us limp at the end of the Winter term after six months of intensive work in the flowery field of Common Law Pleading, while there is still ample evidence that the Class is cherishing tender remembrances of Mr. Justice Siddons. Our Equity courses have been thorough and entertaining, given as they have been by such masters as Mr. Justice Robb, Mr. Justice Bailey, and Mr. Hayden 164 THE POCKET Johnson (who has done so much to convince us, but with little apparent success, that it is all “so simple”). Professor Patterson, too, has done his utmost to put life into Real Property. He admits that the vivifying process has been to him a painful one, and he has had the graciousness time and again to assure his students that they have his sincere sympathy. Those of the Class who were so fortunate as to have taken Professor Bert Emmerson’s course in Evidence at the 1925 summer term were glad to welcome him back for the completion of the course, which is made interesting and particularly valuable by his trenchant handling. On the completion of its second year the Class of 1927 is deeply sensible of the debt it owes to those of the Faculty under whom we have worked in the attainment of that erudition necessary to success in our chosen profession, the Law. The whole- hearted manner in which the professors, without exception, have entered into their subjects has been at all times an incentive to the students for greater effort on their part, with results that have been generally gratifying. To the administration, likewise, are the students grateful for unfailing courtesy and praiseworthy consideration. May we, in conclusion, bid the Graduating Class God speed and a full measure of success in the profession to which we feel certain they will do honor and credit, and ex- press the hope that when, at the beginning of another academic year, we take their place as Seniors, we shall emulate them in scholarship and in those activities through which they have brought distinction to the school. To our fellow-students of the Freshman class we extend the wish that their Junior year will be as profitable in all things pertaining to their scholastic efforts as ours has been, and that they will strive on their part, as we shall on ours, to keep alive between the classes in their future years the spirit of amity which has done so much in the past towards the achievement of the notable victories which the National University Law School, through its students, has attained. —RICHARD THOMAS JOY. “All are needed by each other, “Nothing is fair or good alone.” 165 THE POCKET OFFICERS OF CLASS OF 1927, JUNIOR YEAR. 166 THE POCKET Officers of the Class of 1927 Junior Year CATLETT G. DAVIS President, Class of 1927 Mr. Davis was born in Culpeper, Virginia, on October 8, 1882. He was educated in the public schools of North Carolina and Washington. He has shown himself eminently fitted for the office to which his classmates elected him at the beginning of the school year. As a student, he has few equals in the University and, we think, no peers. His success in the business world is but the forerunner of that which is sure to be his in the field of Law, for he possesses to a marked degree those qualities which are the essentials to advancement at the Bar. He is a member of the Masonic Order and has done much toward promoting the interests of the Masonic Club of the National University, as he has, indeed, all social activities with which the student body has been identified. AUGUSTUS S. BONANNO Vice-President of the Class of 1927 Mr. Bonanno, Kingston, N. Y., after graduating from high school, was for some time a student at Spencer’s Business College. He is at present Chief Clerk in the office of the Chief of Chaplains, War Department, and holds a commission as Captain in the Reserve Corps. He served the class last year as Treasurer, as a member of the Social and Prom Committees. He may be found almost any day in the State, War and Navy Building where he delights in giving gratutiously spiritual guidance and advice concerning the ministry. He is a member of the Woodmen of the World, the Reserve Officers Association of the United States, the Sigma Nu Phi Fraternity, of which he is Second Vice-Chancellor, and of the T.A.F.C. Club, of which he is president. 167 the; pocket Officers of the Class of 1927 — Continued CONSTANCE DORIS FOGLE Secretary of the Class of 1927 Miss Fogle is a native Washingtonian. She re- ceived her preliminary education at the Johnson- Powell Grammar School and was graduated from Business High School in 1923. She is also an alumna of the Washington School of Secretaries. Her activities are manifold, her capacity for work unlimited, and her aimability unfailing. As secre- tary of the First Year Class she became indispens- able, and her re-election to that office in the Junior Year was unanimous. She is President of the Cy Pres Club (of which she was Vice-President in 1925), Secret ary of the Miller Debating Society, and is a member of the Social Committee of the Class of 1927. She is a member of Omricron Chapter of Kappa Beta Pi Legal Sorority, and with it all she finds time to distinguish herself as a student. JEROME GOODMAN KAUFMAN Treasurer of the Class of 1927 Mr. Kaufman was born in Washington, D. C. He was graduated from Business High School in 1919 and from Pace Institute of Accountancy in 1922. He holds the degree of Certified Public Accountant from the State of North Carolina and is a member of the American Society of Certified Public Accountants. He is auditor in the Con- solidated Returns Division of the Income Tax Unit. As Treasurer of the Class of 1927 his suc- cess as a financier has been remarkable and his powers of persuasion have become well known to the class. Due largely to his keen interest in the organization and his indefatigable efforts towards its advancement, the class has a record paid-up membership and a correspondingly satisfactory treasury. It is not too much to say that no class in the history of the National University Law School has attained such a high standard, in this regard, as the present Junior Class. 168 THE POCKET Officers of the Class of 1927 — Continued ADAM A. GIEBEL Sergeant-at-Arms of the Class of 1927 Mr. Giebel was born in Washington, D. C. After eight years’ attendance at grade school, he received his subsequent training in business school. From May, 1912, to February, 1917, he was secre- tary to C. C. Calhoun, Esq.; from March, 1917 to March, 1919, he was law clerk in the office of the Indians Claims Department of Victor J. Evans, Esq. In 1923 he became secretary to the Assistant Engineer Commissioner of the District of Columbia, relinquishing this position a year later to take that of Chief (Law) Clerk in the office of the Cor- poration Counsel of the District of Columbia, which position he still holds. Mr. Giebel has thus had considerable experience in the field of law and as a student he has shown notable ability. RICHARD T. JOY Historian and Editor of the Class of 1927 Mr. Joy was born in Harbor Grace, Newfound- land, and was graduated from St. Joseph’s Academy in that town in 1908. After two years of teaching in grade schools, he took up news- paper work in which, until July, 1924, he was en- gaged as reporter, associate editor and editor. In addition to his regular journalistic work, he was an official reporter in the Newfoundland Legisla- ture from 1918 to 1921, and from 1921 to 1924 assistant supervisor and editor of the assembly debates. He is now Secretary to the Board of Deans of the Catholic University of America, compiler of the University Year Book and press editor of the Catholic Historical Review. 169 THE POCKET Roster of the Class of 1927 Anderson, Lloyd Edward District of Columbia Archer, Harry J.

They scintillated in the courts In actions high and low; In contract, slander, crime and torts: John Doe and Richard Roe. These two galoots were in cahoots And kept the lawyers busy, With most amazing attributes, That made the judges dizzy. Today they join for common weal, And confidence bestow ; Tomorrow from each other steal : John Doe and Richard Roe. Their traits of mind were intertwined With tempers vitriolic, That fostered actions fair and kind And deeds most diabolic. We view these versatile compeers As changing friend and foe: The comrades of our student years — John Doe and Richard Roe. — Van Ness Lawless, ’26. “Law and equity are two things which God hath joined, but which man hath put asunder.” 174 THE POCKET 175 THE POCKET OFFICERS OF THE CLASS OF 1928. 176 History of the Class of 1928 INCE we entered National University as enterprising law students many members of the class have brought us visions of the fame that awaits them in political arena and legal forum. In our election of class officers we witnessed an exhibition of platform oratory, campaign management, and political organization not excelled, in ability and enthusiasm, even by the National Democratic Convention at Madison Square Garden. The result follows: OFFICERS George E. Burdick Carl F. Keeler Ellen K. Raedy George L. Keck Jack Hallam James F. Whelan President Vice-President Secretary . . . . T reasurer Editor Historian With the election over, we started out with the determination of developing into the greatest class the University has ever enrolled. We believe we have succeeded thus far. Our debating society has been full of enthusiasm, having, for the first time, won the decision over the upper classes. In the various activities of the school to which “freshies” are eligible we have furnished the majority of active workers. Our officers and committee members are capable and enthusiastic. We are proud of our brief past, and are looking forward to the future with zest. —JACK HALLAM. 177 THE POCKET Mused the West Wind 8 HE West Wind mused, “Oh, Well. Here are some more. There are a lot of them, too. Many more than usual. I wonder from whence they all have come?” The West Wind floated easily. The West Wind, you know, sees all. It’s no use to lie to the West Wind. But the West Wind was interested. Make no mistake about that. Here, as the West Wind said, were a lot of them. And the West Wind was pleased. It crooned a melody that told of contentment. Certainly, there were numbers and in them was an evident promise, promise of greater things than which had been expected from others. Albeit rifts were to come, harsh words were to be heard, friendly enemies stirred; but of such, the West Wind said: “My Children, your hearts are young. Some of you will fail. I can tell you for I, too, am learned in the law, a natural law that had its beginning with Creation. By that law, so many will carry on, the rest will struggle and fail. But do not be discouraged. The records of the past, you will equal and excell. Others will follow in your footsteps. Build for them a Greater National. " And so the Class of 1928 began! We entered the old Lower Hall for our first session, not cocksure, not with misgivings, but confident of success. It must be admitted that we floundered badly for a few days, yet we pulled ourselves together quickly and then started out to mold that group of nearly three hundred students into a class organization. I here were several attempts — it’s no use to deceive the West Wind — and when that latent spirit was enlivened, oh ! Boy, what possibilities were disclosed. But let’s have that story chronologically. First, there was one meeting of the class that resulted in just nothing. 1 he next brought an election of two of the officers; that meeting also discouraged some of the candidates. Two more officers were elected at a third meeting and the field of seven starters in the race for class president was narrowed to two. Just George Burdick and Bill Bruckart remained, and they fought out their battle at a final session. Those class meetings disclosed to us the stuff of which the Class of 1928 was made, and since we have been on the scene we have shown our upper class friends that we are something more than just ordinary “Freshies.” We have done as much as any of the older classes in school work, we have carried our part of the debating; our class has not been found wanting in its supply of material for the Glee Club ; the Cy Pres and the fraternities have found a fertile field among us. In no way then can we be pointed to as slackers. “And, as I was saying,” reminded the West Wind, “the records of the past, you will equal and excell.” Three terms of our course have we covered, three terms that measured countless leagues toward the coveted National Law School diploma. For we’ve found our level and we are going forward now. “You have nothing to fear,” confided the West Wind. “You have stood the test and proudly should you wear the crest of the Class of 1928. “I must be on my way, but remember: continue to build for those who follow, a Greater National.” —“BILL” BRUCKART. 178 THE POCKET Roster of the Class of 1928 Acton, Thomas J.

To start all our troubles, we mortals fall heir To life’s tribulations “en ventre sa mere.” “Pars viscerum matris” our trials begin ; “Ab initio” Satan creeps under our skin. “Prochein Amis” watch over our infancy’s star And “Guardians ad litem” defend us at bar. At length “sui juris” we pause at the goal, And seek, “bona fide” a charming “feme sole.” We woo her with amorous ardor, forsooth; She’s soon a “feme covert,” the bride of our youth. “Ad ostium ecclesiae” she begs us to shower “Quantum meruit” upon her in lieu of her dower. The honeymoon over, we wander astray, An act “ipso facto” inviting affray. Then, “sui generis,” the suit for divorce Brings scandal upon us, with shame and remorse. The treasured “consortium” we cherished will flee, And out of the court issues forth a decree “A mensa et thoro” from bed and from board, And later, “a vinculo” snapping the cord. Then, “a fortiori,” too tardy we find We were “non compos mentis,” or feeble of mind. — Van Ness Lawless, ’ 26 . 184 THE POCKET 185 THE POCKET Sigma Nu Phi Fraternity (Legal) Sigma Nu Phi Fraternity (Legal) was founded in 1902 and incorporated Feb- ruary 12, 1903, under the act of Congress establishing incorporation laws for the District of Columbia, a charter being granted to the founders of the parent chapter, Joseph H.

DECLARATION OF SIGMA NU PHI United by the strong tie of true brotherhood in the law, we mutually resolve to labor for the good of our order, our country, and mankind. We will strive to pro- mote the well-being of students and practitioners of the law, and to cultivate the ethics of the profession. To secure harmony and maintain good will, thereby per- petuating the Brotherhood, it shall be our earnest endeavor to suppress personal, sectional, religious, and political prejudices, as well as all unhealthy rivalry. To the end, therefore, that we achieve fraternal harmony and lasting benefit, we humbly implore the guidance and assistance of the Ruler of the Universe. Joseph H. Choate (Alpha) Charles E.

Zetzer Nathan Needle Sol Rothbard David Saidman David H. Schatzow D. D’Orsay Sherman Harry Wolpi On December 20, 1924, a group of students at the National University, recogniz- ing the need of a fraternity which would conform to their beliefs and associations, met to discuss and organize what was later to become the Alpha Beta Phi Legal Fraternity. At that meeting the name Alpha Beta Phi was chosen, and officers elected for the coming years as follows: Supreme Chancellor, Saul G. Lichtenberg; Chancellor, B. Robert Bodner; K. R. S. David H. Schatzow; Excheque, Charles I. Kaplan; Chap- lain, Ruben K. Millstein; Marshall, Sol Rothbard. From the time of organization through the first year of its existence, the energies of the entire fraternity were devoted to digging and laying the foundation. To close the first year of its existence a banquet was held. This was a huge success. The organization was still busily engaged in its foundation-laying occupation at the beginning of the school year in October, 1925. Six new men were taken in this year and, together with those remaining, continued the work of construction. This year also marked the incorporation of Alpha Beta Phi Legal Fraternity in the District of Columbia as a national fraternity. It likewise sees the completion of our efforts to organize, with a prospect of a banner year ahead. APPROVED : Rrespectfully submitted, SAUL G. LICHTENBERG, LEWIS D. COHEN, Supreme Chancellor. Asst.

Weller Honorary President Stephen O’Dea President George E. Burdick Vice-President Harry H. Millard Secretary Lane L. Seitz Treasurer George W. Smith Sergeant-at-Arms The Maryland Law Club of the National University was organized on October 15, 1925, for the purpose of assisting those of its members who contemplate taking the Maryland Bar examinations, and in order to foster good fellowship and acquaintance between members of the student body and the alumni. For a number of years there had existed a strong sentiment among students from the “Old Line State” to form a Maryland Club, but it was not until the school year 1925-1926 that the actual organization took place. On October 15, 1925 a number of the students who claimed Maryland as their home state assembled in the “War College,” at the call of Mr. Stephen O’Dea, for the purpose of perfecting the organiza- tion of a Maryland Law Club. By unanimous consent Mr. Stephen O’Dea, Class of 1926, was chosen temporary chairman to serve until the officers were duly elected and installed. Subsequently, on December 8, 1925, a meeting was held at the University and the following were chosen officers of the Club : President, Stephen O’Dea, ’26; Vice-President, George E. Burdick, ’28; Sec- retary, Harry H. Millard, ’26; Treasurer, Lane L. Seitz, ’26; Sergeant-at-Arms, George W. Smith, ’28. At this meeting Honorable O. E. Weller, United States Senator from Maryland, and a graduate of National University, was elected Honorary President. The following committees were appointed by President O’Dea: Harry H. Mil- lard, Chairman, Executive Committee; Samuel Zetzer, Chairman, Bar Committee; Samuel Taylor, Chairman, Social Committee; George W. Smith, Chairman, Mem- bership Committee; and William Laukaitis, Chairman, Publicity Committee. During the year considerable organization work was done and a substantial basis was laid for a Maryland Law Club that will, in future years, become one of the largest state law clubs at any of the colleges in the District of Columbia. The membership of the Maryland Law Club includes the following: Franklin V. Anderson; W. R. Beall; Claude E. Branner; George E. Burdick; Sidney E. Gold- man; Norman A. Gray; Archie L. Hannum; Hiram L. Hannum; John A. Knowles; William F. Laukaitis; Harry H. Millard; George R. Montgomery; Earl R. Mos- burg; Stephen O’Dea; George L. Pickett, 3rd; Joseph E. Roberts; Lane L. Seitz; George W. Smith; Samuel Taylor; Richard A. Worthington; Richard C. Zantzinger; Samuel Zetzer. HARRY H. MILLARD, Secretary. 205 THE POCKET The Rocky Mountain Law Club The Rocky Mountain Law Club is a new organization. It came into being January 17, 1926. On that morning students of the National University Law School whose homes are in the Rocky Mountain States assembled and effected an organization for the purpose of providing opportunity for mutual assistance in the study of law. Included among those active in the formation of the club are thirteen students now enrolled in the law school and two alumni. The officers elected for the current year are as follows: Elmer W. Pratt, President; Newell G. Daines, Vice-President, Adrian A. Merrill, Secretary-Treasurer. The club roster includes, in addition to the officers, William C. Braun, Frederick U. Brossard, George D. Casto, R. John Cum- mings, Earl Cushing, Karl F. Keeler, Grant Magleby, Ezra P. Monson, John A. Nye, David J. Shaw, and S. Preston Smith. The primary object of the club is to familiarize its members with the law and procedure peculiar to the Rocky Mountain states. Another and more immediate purpose is to encourage mutual asssistance among members in preparation for the bar examination. The Rocky Mountain Law Club will be perpetuated. It is hoped that it will prove itself to be a worthy institution in the National University, both in the matter or rendering assistance to its present and future members in the pursuit of legal subjects, and in making known the advantages of the methods employed by and the instruction to be had at the hands of the professors of the National University to the prospective students of the Intermo untain West. 206 ROCKY MOUNTAIN LAW CLUB THE POCKET The War College By His Excellency Claude E. Branner, Grand Exalted Ruler. The War College is the title given the unpremeditated and extemporaneous ex- pounders of the Law who assemble nightly in the War College Library to lay a legal basis upon which the Supreme Court can arrive at their decisions. It is seldom that the decisions of this August Tribunal are ever referred to as obiter dicta and they are never overruled. This great organization came into existence just after Caesar invaded Rome, the membership has increased rapidly and each individual has inherited and broadened the great legal mind of his ancestor. These inhumanly brilliant intellects, impatient to impress their less gifted students with their mental superiority, assemble spontaneously in the Library each evening to settle various perplexing problems that arose from the late universal conflict. On such occasions no opportunity is ever lost by the highly critical minds of the War College members to point out the shortcomings of the many mental inferiors, to wit, the faculty, the politicians, prominent statesmen, just ordinary students, and, “to wit,” the President. The War College has for its motto “IT CAN BE DONE,” and only those who have been initiated into the brotherhood of this benevolent organization ever fully understand its motto or know the intricacies of “HOW.” In addition to the motto of the organization every member holds sacred his first teachings, namely: To let his unpremeditated expatiations and extemporaneous descantings possess a clarified conciseness, a compacted comprehensibleness, a coalescent consistency, a concatenated cogency, and to keep free his estoteric cogitations, his superficial sentimentalities and his amicable philosophical and psychological observations from platitudious ponderosity. To eschew all conglomerations of flatulent garrulity and assinine affectation and en- hance their learnings by the knowledge of others. Ordinarily, after a member has met the prerequisites, learned that it can be done, knows the intricacies of how, he loses a bit of his ego, is deprived of much of his conceit, and enters the field of the study of law with an open and receptive mind. Thereby perpetuating a true conception of the ethics of the profession he is about to enter. No organization in the University parallels the War College, either in member- ship or popularity, and ever increasing expansion has made it a nation-wide organi- zation. Every member, whether or not so inclined, is a booster, and undoubtedly in the future, as the proud members swing down the corridors of time, their thoughts will turn back to the days when acquaintances were found in the arena about which we speak, and will dwell on the interesting doings of the “College” and its helpful- ness in breaking the monotony of the study of the law. Friendship begun here, we hope, will last until the implacable scythe of Father Time will swing forth and break the mortal span on which they rest. May the future see re-unions of our association at which will be present to talk over “Old Times” not students, but lawyers, members of the Bench, the Senate, House and Cabinet, and perhaps Presidents and ex-Presi- dents of these United States. In the language of the Torreadors we ask it, adios amigos! 208 THE POCKET National University War College Court of Last Resort. Officers : His Excellency Claude E. Branner Frank W. Steadman Norman A.

This Club, though only in its infancy, is bringing in new members constantly, and has grown in the past few years until at the present time nearly every woman enrolled in the University has joined hands in promoting its success. In the early fall an enjoyable tea and musicale was given by the Club at the League of American Pen Women, through the courtesy of Dr. Loy McAfee, third year Mrs. Ella O. Howard, second year, and Miss Jean Stephenson, first year. The guests were the new members of the school and the Club Alumnae. We extend our a ppreciation to Mrs. Bernita Shelton Matthews, a prominent attorney, for a very interesting talk, and to the participants in the delightful musical offering. The outstanding event of the season’s activities was the Annual Banquet held at the Franklin Square Hotel on Monday, February 22. The guests of honor on this occasion were Dean Charles F. Carusi, his daughter. Miss Helen .Carusi, and Justice and Mrs. Frederick L. Siddons. Judge Siddons delighted those present with his remarks as toastmaster, and Dean Carusi contributed to the success of the evening by giving a short talk. Music by Paul Le Gable’s orchestra was furnished throughout the evening. A very original entertainment portraying the various periods from 1776 to 1926 was given by the Misses Robertson, Avery, Martin and Jarvis. The club extends to the graduating class best wishes for a bright and prosperous future. —EVELYN JARVIS. 210 GY PRES CLUB the: pocket Glee Club Organized at National University, February, 1926.

La France 212 THE POCKET Richard Alvey Debating Society The Alvey Debating Society, named in honor of the brilliant Richard Alvey, who was at one time Chief Justice of the District Supreme Court, was organized for the school year, 1925-26, during the Fall Term, under the guidance and direction of Professor Meyers, instructor in Legal Debating. Dr. William Fall Wiggins was elected President. He guided the Society through its infancy and into a well organized debating Society, when he was forced to resign the presidency because of ill health. Dr. Robert William McCullough was his successor, and under him the society had several interesting debates. The first inter-club debate with the Miller debating society was held and the Miller Debating Society carried off the verdict and first honors. The Winter Term found Mr. George Henry Zeutzius President. New members were admitted, and the society bent to the task of beating the Miller Debating Society in the second inter-club debate. The question proposed for this debate was Resolved : “That Capital Punishment Should be Abolished in the United States.” Try-outs were held, and Messrs. B. E. Derden, Jack Hallam, and Morris Kraisel were elected to represent the Alvey Debating Society in the second debate with the Miller Debating Society. The Alvey Society had sweet revenge for the set back received in the Fall Term. The team won the verdict, and Mr. Derden carried off first honors. At the election of officers for the Spring Term, the following were elected: Mr. Derden, President; Mr. V. P. Wallace, Vice-President; Miss Edna L. Parker, Treas- urer; Mr. John Flynn, Sergeant-at-Arms. Plans were made for two inter-club debates, only one of which was held. The question proposed for the first Spring inter- club debate was the World Court. Since no debate was held, the members of the team representing the Alvey Society debated the question before the society and Mr. Kraisel was awarded first honors as best speaker. The question selected for the last inter-club debate was Resolved: “That Jury Trial in Criminal Cases Should Be Abolished In The United States.” After some very interesting try-outs the society selected Messrs. F. A. Hartung, John Flynn, and E. F. Bogan to uphold the honor of the Alvey Society in the last inter-club debate. 213 THE POCKET Miller Debating Society T he Miller Debating Society received its talented and enthusiastic members at the beginning of the fall term, and found them eager to enter into activities. Election of Officers was held in October, 1925, with result, as follows: Mr. Douglas Seeley President Mr. Edwin F. Gary Vice-President Miss Constance Fogle Secretary During November and December, debates between its members were held every week and were generally very successful, the speakers being well-prepared and the subjects interesting. In December, 1925, an inter-society debate was held with the Alvey Debating Society, and this society, represented by Messrs. Douglas Seeley, William F. Martin and George E. Pickett, 3rd, carried off the honors, and Mr. Seeley was chosen as the best speaker of the evening. The activities of the society ceased with the beginning of the winter term, be- cause major subjects were assigned on Saturday nights which conflicted with the de- bating hour. 214 the: pocket The National University Law Review By George VV. Wright, Editor-in-Chief. It is with pride that National University points to its Law Review, for this magazine, with the able guidance of its faculty advisors, has taken its place with the recognized leaders of the law reviews of this country. Its contributors are known as authorities in their particular subjects and often their articles are widely quoted. In comparison with the life of our university, the Review has been in existence only a few short years. Back in 1921 a movement was set in motion by the Junior class officers for the establishment of a school paper. Foremost in the movement stood a junior, Hugh Craig Bickford, who had a decided taste for literature, and upon the holding of a joint meeting of all the school classes, it was definitely decided to establish such a paper, and Mr. Bickford was elected Editor-in-Chief, with Mr. Hugh Crampton as Business Manager. This paper, known as The Critic, was purely a student publication, printing class news and the like, although from its very inception some law articles of note were published. Four numbers of about twelve pages each were issued that year. The Critic met with instant approval, and in the following year Mr. Bickford was reelected Editor-in-Chief, with Mr. John W. Martin as Business Manager. During this year the magazine was placed upon a paying basis, its size was materially increased and an attractive cover was added. The type of its articles was also of a higher order and the magazine began to attract the attention of others outside the school. Under the able direction of Mr. Bickford the school magazine was made a reality and its success was made a certainty. In 1923 Mr. John W. Martin was elected Editor-in-Chief. The second issue published by Mr. Martin contained a patent law article relating to the claims of a patent which attracted universal attention. The Standard Oil Company of California alone sent an order for fifty copies of this issue. ' Mr. Claudius B. McCullar, a newspaper man of some note, was elected Editor- in-Chief in 1924, with George R. Martin, Treasurer; Earl G. Hendricks, Circulating Manager, and Alva O. Hearne, W. J. Byrne and George W. Wright, assistant editors. The name of the paper was changed to National University Law Review, and the publication now assumed the proportions of a regular magazine, containing solely legal articles. After the first issue was edited, Mr. McCullar was called to the editor- ship of a paper in the South, and Mr. Wright assumed control the remainder of the year. During the year 1925, the staff of the Review was materially increased to keep pace with its rapidly rising standards. The staff consisted of the following: George W. Wright, Editor-in-Chief; Delmour J. Fuqua, Business Manager; J. G. McLeod, Advertising Manager; Misses Constance F. Fogle and Blanche Kern, Circulating Managers; Charles D. McCadden, Francis W. Trapp, Euclid S. Fleming, Frank Rotello and W. J. Byrne, Assistant Editors. During this year great stress was laid on different depaitmental practices and the Review has become quite an authority on this subject. Mr. Trapp and Mr. McCadden took charge of this feature. 215 THE POCKET Year Book Staff Dr. Loy McAfee Editor-in-Chief Norman A. Gray Fred L.

It was organized under the title, Col- lege of Finance and Business Administration. As the curriculum evolved and the scope of the activities of the school widene d, the name was changed to its present, and more suitable form. This marks a new stage of expansion and growth on the part of the University which, it is hoped, will continue until all departments of knowledge and human attainment are represented in its organization. The purpose and ambition of its founders will then have been fully realized. The school now gives courses leading to the degrees, Bachelor of Arts, Bachelor of Science, Bachelor of Com- mercial Science, and Master of Commercial Science. During the year 1925-26 more than two hundred students were enrolled in the different departments of the school — a very creditable record for this three-year-old department of National University. 220 THE POCKET Faculty CHARLES F.

CORNEJO Philippine Islands Cornejo received the degree of Bachelor of Commercial Science from this school last year, and is now a candidate for the degree of Master of Commercial Science. He is a member of the Faba Club and Philippine Columbians of National Uni- versity, and it goes without saying that, however much he may like his adopted country, his own Island home holds his first and last love. Judging from the sketch of him in last year’s Docket , Eliseo Q. must have made an impression on his biogra- pher that American women have made both good and bad impressions upon this young man. At that time the increasing numbers of bobbed heads seemed to worry him, but by this time he must have ceased to notice them. We have not been informed regarding his future plans but imagine that he expects to engage in some phase of business activity. GREGARIO LEGASPI FAJARDO Malolos, Bulacan, Philippine Islands “General,” as his friends call him, was a cadet for four years in the Western Military Academy of Illinois. He studied for a time at George Wash- ington University before entering National Uni- versity School of Business Administration and Gov- ernment as a candidate for the degree B.C.S. (Bachelor of Commercial Science) which was awarded to him in 1925. He is now a candidate for M.C.S. (Master of Commercial Science). He holds a commission as Second Lieutenant in the Corps of Engineers, Illinois National Guard Reserves, and First Lieutenant, U. S. Army Re- serve. He is a member of the American Society of Military Engineers, of the Reserve Officers Association of the United States, an associate mem- ber of the American Society of Civil Engineers. He is also a member of Scabbard and Blade (mili- tary fraternity), Kappa Sigma Pi, Phi Alpha Delta, and Philippine Columbian of National University. He is president of the last named organization.

For the first time in the history of National University students from the Philippine Islands have formed an organization composed of all Filipino students. The purposes of the organization are: To foster a closer relation between the Filipino alumni and their Alma Mater, National University; to utilize more fully the educating influence of actual and active participation in the student body, and to know more fully, and, in turn, to be known more fully by the American youth. The mem- bership of the club is composed of Filipino students from two departments of the University, namely, the Law School, and the School of Business Administration and Government.

The membership of the club is composed of practically the entire graduating class, and many of the students of other classes. Now that the name of the school has been changed the name of the club (which is made up of the initial letters of National University, Finance and Business Administration) will doubtless be changed accordingly, during the coming year. 233 the: pocket 234 T HE POCKET 235 THE POCKET Odds and Ends THE ALLIGATOR ASSASSIN Tried in the Court of First Instance, Philippine Islands, before Judge W. F, Norris. Toward the close of the last day of the year 1904, a small party of Filipinos were returning home after their day of work. It is fair to assume that they were thinking and chatting happily over the anticipated pleasures of the coming day, New Year’s Day, one of the greatest holidays on the Filipino calendar. As the little party was crossing a bamboo bridge spanning a narrow stream, a splash was heard, followed by the cry of a young girl: “Mother has fallen into the water!” Looking down, the spectators were horrified to see the long curved form of an alligator beneath the bridge. Nothing more was seen or heard of the unfortunate woman. The survivors searched for the missing member of the party, but their efforts were unavailing, and the tragic incident was reported to the Teniente of the barrio. The following morning a bit of red cloth and a fragment of the skull of the victim was found with a lock of hair attached to it. When the next term of the Court of First Instance for the Province of Mas- bate opened, the American judge was surprised upon calling the docket to find thereon a case entitled “Los Estados Unidos contra Uno Cayman” (T he United States vs. A Crocodile). Subsequent developments showed that the defendant was charged with manslaughter in causing the death of the woman under the tragic circumstances herein related. The defendant was duly summoned, and, failing to appear, was tried in absentia, and found guilty as charged. The purpose of instituting the criminal action, it appears, was to remove all grounds of suspicion that might in future attach to any member of the party. If, promoted by desire of revenge for some real or fancied injury, a member of the party should be accused of causing the death of the woman, the falsity of such accusation could be shown by reference to the Court docket showing the judicial decision that she was the victim of the crocodile assassin. —FRANK J. KEATING, JR. ARE WE LAW-CRAZY? A member of the House of Representatives during the early part of the present session of Congress maintained that America (meaning the United States) has gone “law-crazy.” Congress, he said, was buried to the neck in 12,064 bills introduced in the House and Senate during the first two months of the session. For every citizen who urges economy measures, ten clamor for the passage of laws that would create new burdens. “Nearly everyone is backing some pet scheme for making himself happier, for compelling his neighbors to behave better, or for relieving himself from responsibilities which should be gladly assumed and faithfully discharged.” (All of which spells more work for lawyers). 236 THE POCKET Women Students Women were not admitted to the Law School until 19)7. Since that time 131 women have been graduated. Due to the fact that we do not keep track of our graduates as do other larger schools which have more time to devote to such things, the actual number of women who have graduated and who are engaged in the practice of law cannot be ascertained. However, fifteen women graduates are members of the Washington Bar and ten of these are enagaged in actual practice. Compared with the number of men who graduate from all the law schools in Washington, this is a larger percentage than the men graduates show. Although the school has been coeducational only since 1917, National University granted a diploma in 1873 to Belva Ann Bennett Lockwood, one of the leaders of the equal rights movement. Not only was she our first woman graduate, but she was also the first woman to be nominated for President of the United States, and the first to practice before the Supreme Court of the United States, a privilege which she was instrumental in obtaining for women lawyers. Belva Lockwood’s diploma is reproduced on page 11, opposite the picture of President Grant, who signed it. —LOYOLA MARY COYNE. Cap and Gown The origination of the University costume, consisting of a cap and gown which is worn by graduates of colleges and universities indicating their academic rank took place in the middle ages. At this time, the doctors and bachelors of divinity, and graduates of the universities above the rank of bachelors in other departments wore long flowing gowns and caps or hoods. Those having achieved the highest rank wore round caps with a point in front. The undergradutes were soon permitted to wear the gown, though distinctions in gowns did not become prevalent until the fifteenth century. The first radical change came when the bachelors gowns were made shorter than the masters and hoods for bachelors of arts were bordered in white ; and soon numerous differences in form and color distinguished graduates of higher rank. The types of caps and gowns now in use at the University of Oxford have been worn by both graduates and undergraduates since the beginning of the seventeenth century and the higher institutions the world over have usually followed the customs of Oxford. In the United States, the wearing of academic costumes was at first looked upon with disfavor but recently the custom has been adopted by the leading universities and smaller organizations generally. The movement for the adoption of this costume originated in most cases with the students, but has met with encouragement by the faculties and authorities and in some instances it has been required by them independent of student initiative. The wearing of the cap and gown has been urged on the ground that it gives university functions a more impressive and artistic appearance, and that it is essentially democratic inasmuch as it conceals all differences in dress, thus enabling the poorer class of students to make as good a public appearance as the well-to-do. —ELMER H. PRATT. 237 THE pocket Meditations on Lawyers How could we live without lawyers? Lawyers are the only people to whom we can go, to find out how to bend the law, without breaking it — or to crack it a little, without hurting our fingers. A doctor will listen to all the “symptoms” of your hay fever — but only a lawyer will listen to the murmurings of a woman’s bleeding heart ! A doctor is always telling you that “it’s your own fault ; but a lawyer will tactfully agree with you that you are “abused.’ A doctor is always making you take bitter medicine, and give up all the things you love best — and assuring you that you aren’t as ill as you think you are. But a lawyer UNDERSTANDS you. “Understanding misunderstood women” is his business. A lawyer knows more about a woman’s “real SOUL,” after 20 minutes’ con- versation, than her husband knows after 20 years of marriage. A good lawyer knows how to sugar-coat his advice, so that the most sensitive woman can swallow it down like a chocolate sundae. He can tell her that she is an 18-carat fool in such a way that she will feel like a sainted martyr! Even when your lawyer tells you that you can’t GET the alimony, or the judg- ment, or whatever you happen to want, he sympathetically assures you that you OUGHT to have it, and that you have “suffered.” Lawyers are said to be cynical and “hard-boiled " ; but there never was one who didn’t soften a little when a pretty woman wept all over his mahogany desk-top. Many a woman, who has gone to her lawyer for a divorce, has felt that she could go back and endure her husband a little longer, because she has told the lawyer what a “brute” he is, and has gotten it out of her system. Lots of times, a lawyer thinks that a woman has come to him for legal advice, when she has merely dropped in for a little sympathy. There is something awfully appealing to a woman, about a man who stands between her and the cold, brutal world — even when he sends her a bill for it! Lawyers are SO comforting! And charming! —By HELEN ROWLAND. (By courtesy) 238 THE POCKET PORTIA’S FAVORITE POEM Question. — What’s your favorite poem, Portia? Answer . — My favorite poem? Not anything by Byron, Keats or 1 ennyson, but by John Kieran. Here it is: “COME ON, SANDE!’’ The angler dreams of his mountain streams, the play of the rod and reel ; The hunter hies where the big game lies, the gambler sticks to the wheel; But the shriek that rings when the tiger springs is a thin and ghostly wail To to cry that floats from a thousand throats when Sande takes the rail. There’s a mighty shout when Ruth strikes out; there’s a gasp when Dempsey swings; There’s a merry din when the putt rolls in; and a hush when McCormick sings; But the throbbing cheer I love to hear goes echoing up the track When the fleet-foot brown comes galloping down with Sande on his back. Some grow old in the chase for gold, and others strive for fame; Some win on a hunch or a lucky punch, and it’s all a part of the game; Some men howl for the flowing bowl, but give me the stirrup cup, And 10 to 1 on the white-faced dun with a boy named Sande up. And this I love: blue skies above, the smell of the grass and trees! The thoroughbred with the tossing head; the silks blown back by the breeze; The quarter post; the cheering host; the hoof-beats drumming the track; And the far-flung cry that hits the sky: “Sande wins on the black!’’ THE PATENT OFFICE FEELS THE NATION’S PULSE It has many times been said that the condition of business throughout the country is reflected by the volume of business received by the Patent Office. If this be true, surely business conditions have been good throughout the country during the calendar year 1925, since during that year the Patent Office received 108,817 applications of all kinds as against 101,134 in the previous year. Patent applications alone increased from 80,756 to 84,525. That the Patent Office has been a busy institution during the year may also be seen from the fact that the number of patents actually granted increased from 42,594 in 1924 to 46,450 in 1925. The total issues of patents, designs, trade-marks, etc., increased from 63,062 to 68,222 (including 2,278 trade-mark renewals). The cash receipts also show a healthy increase. In 1924 the Patent Office re- ceived more fees than in any previous year in its history, $3,152,792.97; but this record was broken in 1925 by the receipts of $3,411,734.13, an increase during the year of $258,941.16. — The Official Gazette of the United States Patent Officei 239 THE POCKET Will You Ever Forget — Professor Patterson’s lecture on competency in Contracts? Of course you will never forget his droll Virginia drawl. He had struggled through the question of the validity of the contracts of Infants, Drunkards, and Married Women, and was discoursing with a learned admixture of legal and medical lore on the subject of Lunatics, when there slowly emerged from the seated throng the bald head of our forty-plus classmate, Mr. Howard, who, in his inimical New England drawl (which, as you remember, goes the Virginia brand one better), interrupted with: “Professor Patterson, may I return to Infancy for just a moment?” The classes’ roar, and then, Mr. Patterson: “You have my permission, Mr. Howard. ‘ I urn backward, turn backward, Oh time in your flight, and make him a child again, just for tonight! “I want to take up with you all tonight 1 think I can just as well illustrate it by reading what the text says about the subject. The joke told by the Commissioner of Patents, in the Patent Law class, about the Colored Parson who had committed some offense which prompted him to seek another jurisdiction. When he arose to take his text for a Sunday night sermon to his new congregation he sighted an Important Personage from the old community, seated just in front of him, on the front bench. The parson gulped, but was game. Looking the unwelcome visitor straight in the eye, he announced his text : T he ninth verse of the ninth chapter of the Book of Isaiah: If you think you have seen me before, say nothing, and see me later!’ ’ Professor Barse’s pleased and relieved expression when he finally located our Freshman fist-blowing “cally-ope.” Professor Casto’s definition (quoted from a freshman law student) of damnum absque injuria — “A damn bad injury.” Doctor Hickling hanging, garroting, electrocuting, and otherwise putting the quietus on “the patient.” Judge Robb telling the Admiralty class that “the Chattahoochee, you see, cost fifty thousand dollars,” etc. Mr. Johnson: “Now, Gentlemen, in the year 1462, at exactly 3:30 p.m., on Thursday, the 13th of April, ten men entered No. 42 Forty-third Street, and after sitting exactly 30 minutes the rest is easy,” Judge Siddons, elevating the left eyebrow very slightly and gently: “But, my dear sir, what a pe — cu — liar — idea. Wherever did you acquire it? I’m sure, not in the text book.

How did you do it?” Hiram: “Why, when I made out the check to pay him, I just signed my name without specifying the amount. I ' ll bet there’ll be somebody pretty mad when he goes to cash it.” — Edwards, in “Legal Laughter.” One of the favorite stories of Theodore Brentano, now Minister to Hungary, has to do with a lawsuit he heard while judge of the superior court in Chicago. A well known newspaper man and political writer of convivial habits was suing a rail- road for damages. 1 he company lawyer, by cross-examination, was attempting to discredit the stability of the plaintiff. “How long did you work in New Orleans?” he asked. “About three weeks. ” “Fired?” No. Quit. Had an argument with the owner of the paper.” “What about?” “Oh, a question of national importance.” I he same questions and answers marked the newspaper man s progress through Louisville, Minneapolis, Chicago, and Philadelphia. I he lawyer finally gave him up and excused him. A few days after the writer had won his verdict, Judge Brentano met him on the street. Sav, Jim, he said, “what was that question of national importance that cost you so many jobs ?” “I was afraid that fool lawyer would ask that,” replied the other. “It was prohibition.” — Exchange. “What ' s the trouble?” inquired the judge. “1 his lady lawyer wants to make a motion,” explained the clerk, “but her gown is too tight.” “Rastus, what’s an alibi?

Dick Barton, chief mate of the clipper ship Challenge , on the stand. After about an hour of badgering by Choate, “Dick got his salt up, and hauled by the wind to bring the keen Boston lawyer under his batteries.” “The night was dark and rainy,” said Dick, at the beginning of the testimony. Suddenly Choate asked him: “Was there a moon that night.” “Yes, sir.” “Ah, yes ! a moon.” “Yes, a full moon.” “Did you see it ?” “No, sir.” “Then how do you know there was a moon?” “The Nautical Almanac said so, and I will believe that sooner than any lawyer in the world.” “What was the principal luminary that night?” “Binnacle lamp aboard the Challenge ” “Ah, You are growing sharp Mr. Barton.” “What in blazes have you been grinding me this hour for — to make me dull? 4 ’ “Be civil, sir!

It might be of interest to you for The Docket: “Sale by to : The vendor herein, being first duly sworn, declares that he is now dead, that he was dead when he acquired this property, and that he has been married but once.” Evidently the notary passing the sale beat all records for establishing communications with the spirit world. — West Publishing Company’s The Docket. 243 T HE POCKET The Printer It may be sad, but still tis true, There’s one thing all us humans do. And that is, blame the printer. He does his best, without our help, For all we do is stand and yelp, Then cuss, and blame the printer. We write our manuscript by pen. To read it is beyond our ken, Yet we expect the printer To dope it out and get it right. We think not of his time or sight ; If wrong — we blame the printer. We hold our stuff until the last, Then try to rush it through so fast l ' he printer gets snowed under. But still we camp upon his trail, And prod him on with woeful tale, Or rant and roar like thunder. He shoots it through, the proof we get — Hell’s bells ! the job is not right jet. We chop that proof to splinters. It takes two days before he knows Just what each hieroglyphic shows — A dumb lot are those printers. The jobs delivered. Some relief!
